Children With Diabetes Foundation Weekly News for September 28, 2003

Proceeds from the 2003 charity event at the Children With Diabetes conference, as well as fundraisers such as the conference Fun Run, were awarded to Dr. Bernhard Hering at the University of Minnesota last week.

Douglas Cairns, a CWD Foundation volunteer, flew to Minnesota (see Diabetes World Flight) to present the check for $35,000 in person. Dr. Hering and his team are islet cell transplantation experts. They are using this award to supplement their xenotransplantion program.

The CWD Foundation hopes to provide an additional $60,000 this year in support of this very important research.

For more information, see the CWD Foundation web site.
