A Taste of Triabetes



Since Diabetes Training Camp in March, I have made a lot of progress but am still struggling with certain challenges. This promo video, produced by Nella and Ray and their production company, Andiamo, couldn't have come at a better time. This is what I will think about during those long miles of the marathon on the 22nd. And next time I will definitely wear a more colorful shirt ala Bill Carlson. (By the way I had a chance to see the high-def version and I realize now it must make film people cry a little inside to see what YouTube does to their work. The filming for this documentary is amazing!!)

Also, this is an open solicitation to anyone who has connections with an organization/company/foundation that may be interested in funding the documentary and research arms of this project, at any level. We have some incredible sponsors already--thank you!--but the scope of the project could be greatly expanded with more funding. It's tax-deductible!

Cheers, all! Check out the Triabetes page to see what some of my teammates are up to!

I have to admit, I got goosebumps at the JDRF Annual Conference because I didn't have to EXPLAIN Triabetes to people...I merely said "Triabetes" and they would say, "OH I KNOW THAT PROJECT!"

Spreadin' the love... :)
