3 Months after I was diagnosed I found a clinical trial on the internet with Trialnet. I just went for my 15 month check a week ago. WOW! I can't believe I have been doing this for so long. I will not know the results of the tests until about June 2008 but this has been the best experience ever! The people down there are great and honestly care for you. I just can't even tell you how close I have become with them, they are just an extra part of my family now. I was the first one to participate in this study and Im doing good so far so lets all hope for the best. Here is a news website with the article and you can actually watch the video. I couldn't get it to play on my mac, but for those of you with windows media it should work fine. Forgive how dumb I sound. The country accent is VERY noticeable on camera, and I was nervous too. lol http://www1.whdh.com/features/articles/healthcast/BO21827/
