Help Emily and and Zoe in their efforts to raise awareness and support Dr. Faustman’s Cure Diabetes Now Fund at MGH!

Three years ago, at the age of 20, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. My little sister had already been living with T1D for 4 years. We both know how truly difficult and frustrating it is to have a pancreas that refuses to work.

Cure T1D | Crowdfunding

Together we have struggled with having to count every carb, inject insulin, and deal with the mood swings and physical effects of highs and lows. Type 1 diabetes is a huge challenge. I feel lucky that I wasn’t diagnosed until I was 20, while many young children deal with it every day. The work that Dr. Faustman is doing is so exciting, we can’t wait to be a part of finding a cure!

Nico & Vali will donate 10% of sales that day to the Cure Diabetes Now Fund. If you can’t make it to the restaurant, you can still support the Faustman Lab using the donation form at give.massgeneral.org/2013-cure-t1d
