  3. We want to thank you, Professor Damiano, and your team for your undying dedication to finding a better way to handle this relentless disease.

    Thank you from,

    My 50 y.o.daughter, type 1 for 48 years, my 42 y.o. son, type 1 for 18 years and my almost 18 y.o. granddaughter, type 1 for 10 years) and me, their mother and grandmother.

  4. Please don’t forget us in the UK! We seem to be 20 years behind you as far as technology goes. I’ve already lost one daughter to type 1 diabetes.My other
    daughter is 36 . Diabetic for 33 of those years.

  5. Thank you for your commitment to type 1 diabetes and helping to improve the lives of those who live with this disease and it’s numerous complications. Having a son with type 1, who works as a wilderness therapy guide and spends all his time in the outdoors, I am constantly hoping and praying for an easier way for him better control his diabetes and live a long and healthy life. For our son’s sake and the millions of others like them I hope your iLet will soon become available for them all.
