Research on curing Diabetes is essential

When Max was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes, our biggest fear was the idea of having to hurt him several times a day. What parent would want that?

But thanks to persistent research efforts and a focus on minimizing pain (and with funding from so many generous donators), the needles we use for injecting insulin are hair thin and don’t hurt – even though they might be a little uncomfortable. I sometimes stab myself to reassure Max that it doesn’t hurt when he gets a little worried.

That’s part of why research and progress on curing Diabetes is so important.
