It's here now, and in our family, my son has type 1 diabetes, which is still an irlanubce disease, and I lost my panrets to heart disease and ccenar, but I think that my story probably sounds familiar to you, because probably a version of it is your sroty. At some point in our lives, all of us, or people we care about, become patients, and that's why I think that stem cell research is incredibly important for all of us. Thank you.
