Scientists from the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) at the University of Miami are developing a DRI BioHub, a bioengineered "mini organ" that mimics the native pancreas, containing real insulin-producing cells that can sense blood sugar and release the precise amount of insulin needed in real time. The DRI BioHub brings the promise of restoring natural insulin production and normalizing blood sugar levels in millions living with diabetes one step closer to reality. You can help by supporting the DRI BioHub now! Learn more at DiabetesResearch.org/BioHub
They come from New York, Miami, Milwaukee and more, they have kids of all ages with type 1 diabetes and they're on a mission to find a cure. They're The Real Moms of the DRI Foundation and they're asking you to support the Diabetes Research Institute in honor of Mother's Day.
They're telling their stories - about their kids lives and their own lives - and how diabetes affects them. The stories may be different, but they all share the same mission - a cure for diabetes - and the belief that the DRI will discover it. Click on the videos below to meet each of them and hear their stories.
Honor a special mom in your life for Mother's Day with a special gift to the Diabetes Research Institute.
