Ever since she was diagnosed, she has continued to be very active in soccer, dance, and she has even completed two Triathlons and she plans to do more.<br /> <br /> The Murphys met Dr. Ed Damiano at the 2014 Children with Diabetes - Friends for Life Conference in Orlando, FL after his wonderfully informative and inspiring presentation on the Bionic Pancreas. Nancy spoke with Dr. Damiano about Grace participating in his upcoming clinical trial for T1D children ages 6-11. Grace very bravely agreed to participate. The trial was scheduled to begin just two weeks later at the Clara Barton Camp in Massachusetts. Grace successfully completed the official screening process then Mama Murphy scrambled to make all the travel arrangements and get Grace enrolled at the camp. (It was a lot of work!)<br /> <br /> On July 20th, Nancy dropped Grace off at Camp, where there were about 100 kids at camp, of which 12 girls were in the study. (A study with the boys will be coming up soon at Camp Joslin.)<br /> <br /> Nancy also has type 1 diabetes, for almost 45 years, and can speak to the incredible advances in T1D care from the time of her diagnosis to Grace's test-run of the BP!

He has traveled around the world, working directly with numerous assistance and guide dog organizations to further the life-saving skills assistance dogs can provide to people with disabilities.<br /> <br /> In 2012, Mark was awarded the Bronze medal and, in 2013, the Silver medal for the Jefferson Award to recognize his<br /> work in promoting volunteerism in the community with GDB and D4D. He was a contributor on the revisions to the<br /> American's With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 2011 and also served on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)<br /> Disability Coalition to ensure thorough, but equitable, screening of persons with disabilities and assistance dogs.<br /> <br /> He consults with corporations and government entities on the ADA and assistance dogs in the work place.
