Christine needs funding for costs to participate in an NIH clinical study to cure auto-immune diseases (like type1 diabetes, arthritis, etc.

Christine has had type one diabetes for 32 years not producing any insulin at all for 31 years. She started to not have symptoms of low blood sugars in 2001 and faces severe, life-threatening low blood-sugars. Frequently, the hospital has not been capable of giving a measurement because her level has dropped below 20 mg/dl. During these times, the hospital has a difficult time placing an I.V. The study re-educated the immune system with a machine that separates the immune cells from the blood. Three procedures are required over nine months. The outcome would be eliminating the auto-immune disease.
