First I would like to say that I am thrilled with the responses to my entries on this website. It is so easy to feel alone with Type I. And yet, there are so many of us with similar experiences. It is a joy to feel connected.
The new study mentioned in the title just came to my attention yesterday on March 4th about 2pm EST. I received a call from the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) in Miami, FL. The DRI is planning a long term (10 year) study on subjects that received an Islet Cell Implant. I am so excited I could spit!
Just recently I started to feel well enough to jump back into the "Cure Community." I would love to become a spokes person for Type I Diabetics and a need for a cure. I love public speaking and think that I could help with a little cause and effect. So, the call from the DRI was exactly what I needed to get my rear in gear and get back out and fight the good fight. I will do my best to keep all y'all posted.
