  • One of the questions is Do you think your concerns are met? On several occasions I have written the JDRF complaining about their funding for the fake pancreas. I have said that I think funding should go to real cures. I have asked who will manufacture the fake pancreas. Who will make money off of it. Everytime I write I get the same answer. In sum and substance–Thank you for your interest in the project. If you wish to donate please send us money. They have NEVER once addressed my concern or answered my questions. I send money else where.

    I’m sorry you do not receive the answers to the questions. How hard would it be for you to receive the answers to your questions? it’s not that hard. I know there are a lot of hands into the artifical pancreas-Animas, Medtronic and Dexcom. I’m not exactly sure on what roles each company would play. If I had the answers I would share them with you. I’m curious, who have you tried to contact at JDRF?
