Why I Support the DRI

"...there will be a cure, and it's going to come from the DRI."
                                                                           -- Matthew Tendler

Matthew Tendler, co-founder of Glucose Buddy, an iPhone application that helps people with diabetes track their blood sugar

Why he's involved
Matthew was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a freshman at the University of Indiana.

How he helps
Each time someone takes a survey on the Glucose Buddy website, Matthew's company donates to diabetes organizations, including the DRI.

Why the DRI?
Matthew toured the DRI in Miami. "“It was truly astounding. I mean, the work that they do there is spectacular.

“I feel like being at the DRI, I just had a little bit of insight of what’s going to happen. The cure is going to happen.

“It’s going to come from that Institute, in Miami, those people working on new technologies, combining ways to work with other worldwide leaders. I mean it’s astounding -- all the technology on all different levels, that these people are pursuing.

“I fully believe there will be a cure, and it’s going to come from the DRI.”
