Wed Dec 2 1998 10:20:02 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
Alan, I'm the grandmother of an 8year old diagnosed at 15 months of age. Are you active in fund raising for cure research? How is Brennan doing these days?

Hello everyone. :-)

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:21:57 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
hey there Judy. Bless your heart..it's difficult with one child with diabetes..two must seem overwhelming at times.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:22:07 Eastern US
Ellen (Florida) from 152.163.201.201
My 11 year old son Zachary was diagnosed at 15 months of age.

Thank you for all you do to raise money to help cure this insidious disease.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:22:39 Eastern US
Renee from 152.163.232.52
Is Brennan involved with JDF at all Alan? I keep hearing late teens & early 20s are the most difficult age

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:22:41 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
thanks for that info, Renee! Valerie, I'm hoping the ltr writing campaign is going to pay off for the awareness stamp!

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:22:42 Eastern US
susanne from 208.156.137.70

Judy from 165.154.111.176

Hi Lyn :-)

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:24:34 Eastern US

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:24:52 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
hey susanne...how are you and your child doing?
Ellen, it's great to see you!
Karla, how's Ashley doing?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:24:53 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
JDF'S MANDATE AND GOAL IS CURE RESEARCH. BRENNAN IS DOING RELATIVELY WELL, BUT THE CLOUD OF DIABETES WILL REMAIN OVER OUR HEADS UNTIL THERE IS A CURE

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:25:01 Eastern US
Judy from 165.154.111.176
Thanks Lyn, two is difficult, but in some ways, I think they support each other. As they get older, that support will hopefully grow.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:25:21 Eastern US
Linda/So. Utah from 207.49.61.29
Our daughter Kim, almost 11 was dx'd 2 years ago at Christmas..thank you for all you do...

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:25:32 Eastern US
Ruth White from 208.153.85.119
If someone is interested in helping to raise money for diabetes research how do they start?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:25:37 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
mycra....I'm always saddened when I learn of yet another child diagnosed with this disease. The #'s are rising very fast, or is it my imagination?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:25:53 Eastern US
Gina from 206.230.9.138
Alan...how was it for Brennan growing up with D from such a young age? My daughter is now 3.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:26:05 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
I THINK THAT IS A DIFFICULT AGE NO MATTER WHAT YOUR HEALTH AND CIRCUMSTANCE MIGHT BE, BUT BRENNAN REMAINS INVOLVED AND PARTICIPATES IN FUND RAISERS, PARTLY OUT OF HIS GRATITUDE FOR JDF AND THE EFFORT HE HAS SEEN HIS PARENTS DEVOTE OVER THE YEARS.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:26:26 Eastern US
Lisa from 208.130.76.38
Alan, after nearly 20 yrs. does your son have any complications. My son was dx'd a yr ago next week..he was 5.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:26:35 Eastern US
Lyn from 199.72.96.152
brb..

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:26:50 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
THERE ARE CHAPTERS IN MOST MAJOR CITIES IN THE COUNTRY AND THERE IS A NATIONAL CONTACT NUMBER 1800JDFCURE.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:27:30 Eastern US
Karla/Wisc. from 207.112.213.76
What gets me is the number of kids that go undiagnosed and the yare sick but some people don't realize to put the symptoms together and figure that Diabetes can hit at any age not just adults or older adults.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:27:59 Eastern US
Ruth White from 208.153.85.119
How can someone help with the stamp project? Is there a website?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:28:05 Eastern US
Judy from 165.154.111.176
Lyn, the stats indicate that D is on the rise. Hopefullly this will aid in more reserch dollars, that will eventully lead to a cure.I pray everyday

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:28:36 Eastern US
Karla/Wisc. from 207.112.213.76
What can someone like me in a very small town do to start help in my town like support groups or other programs for parents or even kids.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:28:40 Eastern US
mycra from 208.235.5.44
I had never heard of juvenile diabetes until Tyler was diagnosed.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:02 Eastern US
Gina from 206.230.9.138
Karla...in Bailey's case, I didn't KNOW the signs of D....no one on either side of our family has had diabetes. She was dx'd early...but for some they seem to "let it go"....

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:02 Eastern US
Judy from 165.154.111.176
I think testing for D should be part of a routine check up

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:07 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
MY SYMPATHIES BECAUSE IT IS DIFFICULT AND CHALLENGING AND NO PSYCHOLOGIST CAN PRESCRIBE A SUREFIRE WAY OF COPING WITH THE CHALLENGES THAT LIE AHEAD. SCHOOL CHILDREN CAN BE CRUEL. BRENNAN USED TO BE THE BUTT OF TEASING AND WAS CALLED DIABETES MAN. THESE CHILDREN BECOME CURIOUSITY CASES AT B'DAY PARTIES AND HALLOWEEN. I THINK THE KEY IS COMMUNICATION WITH THE PARENTS WHO MUST NORMALIZE LIFE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:19 Eastern US
Stacey Harmis (Ksjharmis@aol.com) from 205.188.192.32
Hi Alan, with the help of the Insuli-Free World Foundation and King Features Syndicate, I have launched a diabetes awareness campaign called Making Noise to Cure Diabetes. The address is www.insulin-free.org. I'm trying to get mainstream publicity and having a hard time. I really want celebrity involvement and hope you're interested.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:38 Eastern US
Leann from Indiana from 158.52.254.250
What gets me are the Doctors who can not put it together. 1 week before my son was diagnosed I told the pediatrician that he was extremely thirsty all the time, but he had a sore throat and ear infection. she said if he was still thirsty to come back in 2 weeks. We made it a week, when we took him in his bgl was over 600

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:42 Eastern US
Jeff Hitchcock from 206.112.197.133
Ca you tell us about the postage stamp effort?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:29:50 Eastern US
Gina from 206.230.9.138
Karla...I'm involved with a support group called "Sugarbugs"...started here locally, now going nationwide and even into Canada!!!

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:30:03 Eastern US
susanne from 208.156.137.70
What really gets me is the adults whose Drs. say you only have a little D. I really hope with the CDC lowering the numbers more adults will get education and treatment earlier.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:30:27 Eastern US
Karla/Wisc. from 207.112.213.76
How can I start one where I live?

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:30:37 Eastern US

Gina,I am also starting a chapter of SugarBugs here

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:30:58 Eastern US
Judy from 165.154.111.176
Allan, my husband is an artist, we live in Canada, we have talked about producing a limited edition print to raise money for D reserch, any idea's as to marketing etc.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:31:01 Eastern US
Gina from 206.230.9.138
That's what I've worried about alot Alan....the teasing and picking she will have to endure. Unfair disease enough as it is, without the cruelty dealt by other children!

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:31:04 Eastern US
Jeff Hitchcock from 206.112.197.133
Karla: The JDF national office can help you. Call 1-800-JDFCURE.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:31:07 Eastern US
Ellen (Florida) from 152.163.201.201
Alan, when you first became involved with JDF, did you believe Diabetes would be cured by now? My son has had diabetes for nearly 10 years now, and although I remain hopeful, cynicism has gotten the best of me. I just don't see it cured 10 years down the road.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:31:14 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
YOU CAN ASSIST THE STAMP PROGRAM BY SENDING LETTERS AND PETITIONS TO: CITIZENS STAMP ADVISORY COMMITTEE, C/O STAMP MANAGEMENT, US POSTAL SERVICE, 475 E'ENFANT PLAZA, SW, ROOM 4474EB, WASHINGTON, DC 20260. OR CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE WWW.JDFCURE.ORG AND CLICK ON STAMP OUT DIABETES

Alan, the Making NOise campaign features a T-shirt with King Features comic strip characters like Betty Boop, Popeye, Blondie, etc. marching in a noisy campaign carrying a banner which reads We're Making Noise to Cure Diabetes.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:33:16 Eastern US
ALAN THICKE from 206.150.228.62
YES I DID...IT'S DISAPPOINTING AND FRUSTRATING THAT MEDICAL SCIENCE NEVER SEEMS TO WORK FAST ENOUGH FOR PARENTS. ALL THE MORE REASON FOR US TO BE INVOLVED IN ACCELERATING THE PROCESS.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:33:43 Eastern US
Ellen (Florida) from 152.163.201.201
Stacey my husband and I will both try to get to the International Cartoon Museum. Can you send me a bunch more brochures? I'll distribute them at our ped endo's office. She has a huge caseload with her other two partners.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:34:36 Eastern US
Karla/Wisc. from 207.112.213.76
The support groups around here are for adults and I do not want to take my 7 year old to hear about complications that I may be able to prevent with controling her BS now.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:34:39 Eastern US
Stacey Harmis (Ksjharmis@aol.com) from 205.188.192.38
I'm so glad!! We stood outside the Today Show window last Monday, but didn't get interviewed. We did meet Katie Couric after the show. We gave her T-shirts and a letter. I asked for help from NBC airing a quality segment about D, current research (islets) and real stories about people living with D. Maybe if you offer to host, it'l happen

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:34:44 Eastern US

susanne from 208.156.137.70
Karla I helped get an adult group going here in our small community. Most of the adults that come had had almost no diabetes education. Its wonderful a year later to see them becoming empowered and asking their drs questions. We have to give back to others but its not always to the kids.

Wed Dec 2 1998 10:38:00 Eastern US
Jeff Hitchcock from 206.112.197.133
