My name is Steven Paraskevas. I'm a busy dad, husband, and surgeon at McGill University Health Centre. I lead the Human Islet Transplant Laboratory at the MUHC (www.isletlab.org). We are developing new treatments for Type 1 Diabetes, and need your support. Our work has already started freeing patients of their need to take insulin, but islet transplantation is still an emerging therapy without government support. We also do research into the root causes of Type 1 Diabetes in hopes of ultimately curing this disease. On February 11th and 12th, I'm skiing the Canadian Ski Marathon, a gruelling 160 km winter adventure that runs from Lachute to Buckingham, QC. I've never done anything like this before! With your help, you can give me the motivation to keep going when the trail gets tough! Click on the link below to make a donation and contribute to our program and the fight against Type 1 Diabetes.
