    Of course it is for those newly diagnosed. It even says somewhere close to the bottom of the article that they still have to figure out a way to keep the immune system from attacking again. But progress is progress.

    I hate diabetes. But I wouldn't be bothered if they could keep others from getting it. I just keep hoping they also find the cure for our kids who have had it for a while.

    I logged onto AOL late last night and this was one of their headlines. For a moment my heart raced as I opened the article....then I realized it was only for newly diagnosed and my heart sank.

    Then I felt bad for only thinking of my son and not all the others that it could help....

    I pray and hope that this is sucessful and can help all the children (and adults) out there who have yet to get D.

    I also pray and hope that this might lead us one step closer to a cure of those with D.

    I read this article and think any progress is great. I hope we can find a vaccine to keep all other children from dealing with this disease. I also really hope the find something to help our children dealing with this nightmare already. We are only 5 months in to dx and I am already so sick of it!
