Two Minutes

It'll only take two minutes.

Probably less.

Please go sign JDRF's Artificial Pancreas Project petition.  And ask your friends and family to do the same.

 The APP gives me something I thought I'd lost: hope.  I haven't given up on a cure, but I have serious doubts about that happening anytime soon.  I'm not even sure it will happen in my lifetime.

But a closed-loop APP system?  That's something tangible.  Something I can hope to see on a realistic time table.

From the JDRF site:  "A basic 'artificial pancreas' would link continuous blood sugar measurements to an insulin pump with software that would together function more like a normal pancreas."

Please sign the petition, and help make this dream one step closer to a reality.

Hope changes everything.
