The Gift of Research

When you participate in a research program you offer the gift of life to those who follow you. It is the same gifts that we all received from those who also gave their time and faith:the discovery of anesthesia,  antibiotics and the cure of many cancers. With your help we may now, finally, be able to conquer severe obesity and diabetes as well.
