Re: [IP] Nat'l History Day



Mary Jean,
Congratulations on your sons science project.  I hope that not only the judges
but others got an education about diabetes.  I think the more people who are
educated the greater understanding and hopefully funding there will be.  You
have every right to be very proud of your son.
