I do not agree with embryotic stem cell research either. My son also has D. He was diagnosed at 3 and is 5 now.
I support The Iacocca Foundation (which in turn supports Dr. Faustman). They have a policy that states they will not give any money to fund stem cell research. That way you know your money isn't going to something you don't like.
I just did a walk a couple of weeks ago and all the money went to The Iacocca Foundation. The money went to 2 different research projects, Dr. Faustman's project and a project being done at the University of Virginia by Dr. Jerry Nadler.
If you click this link it will tell you more about the research The Iacocca Foundation supports.
They don't do numerous walks like JDRF. That's why I started a walk on my own. Or you could just do a letter writting campaign to solicite donations.
