There are too many babies, children, and even adults dying from this disease, and we need to have the resources to mobilize to make sure that the education is there, the treatments are there, and that we can have all of the research organizations are working together actively to come up with a CURE! My heart goes out to the Kuehl family, and all families who have lost loved ones to this disease.

I know that there must be Many ways how we can put our money where our mouth is / mouths are.
While I don't have spare money lying around, I can and will do what I can to support research such as this video shows -- and do without some discretionary weekly something. I'm a type 1 veteran of 43 yrs but so, SO many children like Rocco haven't a chance. I wish I knew the best avenues for my limited donations, beyond JDRF. Action? Imagine if all Type Ones and Type Twos & their families could and would donate and dedicate what they could for research! ... via donations, walking and sponsoring Walks, and more. Lord knows -- and medical science knows, too -- that there could be WAY WAY fewer sad stories like little Rocco's in our world communities' future.

I watched this video 3 times and couldn't help but cry each time. It is Really Sad when any Diabetic dies but it is particularly Heartbreaking when a Child dies. My deepest condolences to the Parents, Rocco's Sister and their Families.
