And here in the UK we have our own list of amazing people, including Olympic rowing champion Steve Redgrave. Thanks for posting all this. Diabetes, particularly childhood diabetes Type 1, is part of my family's everyday life, and I cheer you and Brenda, and everyone else who contributes to the research in whatever way, in the US and the UK. Good luck to you all! :)
