Hoping for a Cure

Image taken from Faustman Labs Summer/Fall 2009 News letter

A study run by Denise L Faustman out of Massachusetts General Hospital is inspiring new hope in the search to cure Type 1 Diabetes. I have been following this study for over a year and am quite frankly estatic about the clinical results of their testing. I have watched my dad, a Type 1 Diabetic, struggle with the disease – the constant finger pricks and insulin injections, the occasional trip to the emergency room for close scares – not to mention the internal battle caused for a guy who loves sugar cookies and pumpkin pie.

Below is the link to the study’s most recent newsletter. It explains the disease and research project in a comprehensive manner. Check it out!!
