The Big Diabetes Lie: http://bit.do/DiaLi Research Shows How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes in 3 Weeks
– The Hawaii Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation was formed in the spring of 1989 by Hollis Wright, mother of Erin, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the first grade. The overwhelming news was made even more difficult when Erin’s family found that there were few resources, little information, and no support system in place for families facing this lifetime sentence of insulin dependence. They worked to assemble a small group of interested community members and parents of children with diabetes who all made a commitment to JDRF’s mission to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
