This is my simply attempt to get some media attention for Faustman's work. I plan to tweak it for different talk shows, etc. This is the "Oprah" version. Enjoy and pass on to your friends!

A very powerful message for all our world leaders to stop this condition.This presentation is a sad reality.I watched this and it brought tears to my eyes just thinking that it could've been my children in those pictures.Let's hope we get some action!

Just a quick note. I'm taking part in a triathlon soon and using the event to fund raise for Dr. Faustman's research. So if you'd like to let folks know the details are all on my triathlon page. My goal isn't as high as previous years, but every $ helps.

Great video! Even after nearly 32 years with the disease, it still brought tears to my eyes. Not for myself (as I've grown use to it), but for the many young children who will suffer.

So, a video asking Oprah to make a donation? How about, asking not just for a donation of money, but a donation of time -- exposure -- association of their known celebrity status? Also, is there a reasonable way to get past the hundreds of these sort of requests most celebrities get on a daily basis, to let her know the significance of this particular request?

This is awesome! I will post it on, feature it here on TuDiabetes and tell people in the community to check this out.

Thanks for doing this!
