[IP] GATE/DIABETES (READ)!



Greg,
YOU HAVE A POINT.  So, lets do it!  Lets RAISE HELL about finding a cure for
diabetes.  But...how do we get in the media?  How do we get to Congress?
How do we get to Hollywood..its a long way from Wilson, NC :)
Am I the only one who wears my grey ribbon daily?
DIABETICS, WHY ARE WE NOT DEMANDING A CURE???
Where do we go from here??
A few months ago a group of us talked about marching in Washington in March
of this year.  Does anyone want to take an initiative to get the ball
rolling on this one?  Where do we need to start to get our DIABETES in
Washington?

Mel who is looking for ways to give OUR DISEASE some PIZAZZZZZ!
