T1me for a Cure was created as a way to combine my abilities with my desire to raise money for Type 1 diabetes research for a cure. My son was diagnosed almost 3 years ago at the age of 5. Currently, most of the funds raised in the name of type 1 are put into new treatment development and education, so this is my small attempt to push cure research onto an even level with treatment research. 100% of proceeds (I am donating all materials and labor) from this particular sale will go to Dr. Faustman at UMass. If you would like to donate directly, you can click here.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system malfunctions and attacks the pancreatic Beta cells which make insulin. There is currently no known cause (impossible to prevent) or cure for type 1 , as with most other autoimmune disorders. Dr Faustman’s research to cure type 1 could help with other autoimmune disorders as well.
