Even though I claim I'm not waiting for a cure, I still want one so badly.
This article has my attention today.
I'm afraid to hope.

I haven't asked you for anything since I was a kid. Please let this be true. I've been a good girl all year.
Here's to hoping, Kerri!

It sounds f**kin excellent. However, I don't think if a cure is found I could afford what ever it is. We don't have insurance here the NHS pay for things and they don't wanna pay for anything.
Hope it is true. Hope people in america and canada do good. Things always happen in england well after anywhere else.

Keep the research and the possibilities coming.

N - Hope. For the first time in a long time, I have an inkling of it.
Vicki - I swear, if it's only available in the US and Canada, I'll come over to the UK and pick you up, smuggle you back, and make sure you get it, too.
Nathan - No shit.

I agree with every word.

That is AMAZING! Woah. One can only hope *fingers crossed - every body part crossed*. I'm almost scared to hope too much ....

That's an amazing article, but like you,I'm afraid to hope.I can't (yet), dissapointment/promising treatments have meshed paths before.

This looks very hopeful, especially because it's a completely different approach.
I'm also intrigued by this note on a new prevention approach for Type 1:

"I'm afraid to hope."
I wouldn't have understood that sentence a year ago.
Sadly, I do now.

I'm a skeptic at heart, but this made my skeptical heart skip a beat. Here's to hope!

Oh I so want this to be true.

ahhh that's a sweet thing to say kerri! i'd repay the complent my letting you and the boyfriend and the cats come over to england for a trip?!

I haven't thought about a cure lately. I've just been trudging along taking care of things as they come. Things like this make me stop in my tracks and think about it a bit. Then, I just start trudging ahead again.
But, hope, yes I have it. I can't imagine living without it.

Kerri...This sounds great, and once again let us all thank the intelligent/creative minds in Canada who not only discovered this good piece of news but let us not forget Drs. Banting and Best(also from Canada) and their discovery of insulin which is why WE are here today. My only concern regarding this research is that the mice still had some viable Beta Cells left where all of us with T1DM do not.

A friend sent me this article last night and for the first time ever I have hope. My endocrinologist told me years ago that "they have a cure on paper, but I think by the time they get it approved (if it even works) your generation of fellow diabetics will be too old to reap the benefits". Thanks doc.....

If we have no hope, how can we expect our children or other diabetics to have hope. We must believe that there is hope. We cannot let them believe that their future is bleak. I do believe like tinker bell
that their will be a cure. I have to believe that. It keeps me sane! Kerri's Mom

I read this earlier and I too have hope, for my son. I hope he grows up to be as well-rounded and funny as you are. Thanks for sharing your insights and your writing. Keep following your dream.
December 17, 2006 11:51 PM
Yeah, this article is truly amazing. Where it goes from here, I guess time will tell. I just hope it isn't another 10-20 years down the road, we'll give you some updates. I want to know more now!!

This research was carried out at Sick Kids' Hospital here in Toronto - the same hospital that houses the peds endo clinic my son goes to. They do very good work there, both from a clinic point of view (they have an annual "Diabetes Day" which is great) and from a research point of view. But what would you do with these results? Inject Neuropeptide Y into your pancreas? It hardly sounds like a cure. But if it was only once every few months as the original research article suggests, then maybe. The paradigm shift is way cool, though.
