Wanted to forward this email from my friend (Terry Wright) at BCG Clinical Trials in case you are in California and can meet the people that are on the path to cure Type 1 Diabetes. They are well on their way and moving through the process for clinical trials. Your support is important, because BIG drug companies aren't (there's no money in curing the disease, but there lots of money in maintenance of the disease). Remember, Type 1 you're born with -- it's the kids living with it that need your help...AM
