Dr Faustman

I recently learned more about Dr. Faustman when I was doing some research on stem cell research.  I believe what Dr. Faustman is doing is very promising.  She has been able to cure Type 1 Diabetes in mice by killing off the white blood cells that kill islets in the pancreas.  Her research does not use embryonic stem cells for research.  It is sad that the drug companies stand in her way, since they stand to loose a lot if  Dr. Faustman can do this in humans.  There are FDA approved clinical trials going on right now, but she needs funding. Wouldn't it be amazing if a cure ends up being this simple.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video and check out Dr. Faustman's website

So many of you have touched our lives in a special way this year and there are no words that can express our gratitude.

After I was just telling Tim last week that I didn't think we would reach our goal this year....and yet here we are!

We have been incredibly blessed!

Two Weeks and Counting!


I'm EXCITED to announce that to date we have raised $590 for JDRF!!

That is VERY exciting, but we are still short for our team goal. I know that we can do it!

You still have up to the day of the walk to get donations so make calls, email/snail mail letters, sell sneakers, whatever you need to do (short of robbing a bank of course!) to met your personal goal and help us reach our team goal. Also, don t forget to recruit additional walkers for our team.  Walk day is going to be great so don t let your family, friends, or neighbors miss out!

I am putting our T-Shirt order in tomorrow so please let me know by tomorrow if you
plan on walking with us.Your support means so much to us!  I can't wait to see the look on
Lovebug's face when she see's all of you there for her!!

Thank you for all your hard work and support!
