    I am a mother of a 14 yr old boy ( Ricky) diagnosed 10 yrs ago. I am also a teacher and president of an Association of people with type 1 db. (Insieme Per il Diabete) in Italy (Palermo/Sicily).
    I love your words and agree with what you say but I would like to invite you to join our campaign to raise awerness in order to find a cure. It’s true that “it will be alright” but we HAVE TO PUSH research, Pharmacueticals SHOULD invest more on a CURE, not only on waht a person with db1 needs.Too many adolescents go through hell everyday of their life and too many people die every day. THE WORLD HAS To know this, otherwise everybody thinks that DIABETES is not as dangereous as it is and there will never be enough awerness and funds to find a cure.
    Please help us with our campaign, we are looking for a testimonial for worldwide campaign. What about a great concert in Sicily? We will do all we can to give you the right conditions for the performance.
    Thank you for what you do, together we can do more.
    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
