[IP] Islet Transplant Chat



Hi All,

Thought this may be of interest.


THE MIAMI ISLET FOUR!
Rita Hart, Rachel Harris, Ken Tenbusch & Kenny Bernstein

THURSDAY, 20TH JUNE, 9:00 P.M. US EAST COAST TIME

These four courageous people join us to discuss everything and anything
about islet transplantation.  All four have very different stories and lives
but are
bound by their gratitude to the Diabetes Research Institute in Miami for
taking away their diabetes, and in some cases horrendously crippling hypo
unawareness as well.

Kenny can still count the days of insulin-independence on his fingers, while
Rachel is raring up to celebrate her one-year anniversary next month!  The
four have become great friends through this momentous shared experience.

If you have followed the progress of islet transplantation over the years,
or considered it for yourself, in just one hour at Diabetes Station you will
be able
to experience the joys as well as the challenges it is bringing.
