Update from San Francisco 5: A cure for Wolfram leads to a cure for Diabetes and blindness

My visit to San Francisco with the Snow Foundation was quite fruitful. The highlight of this visit was a fundraising event at Hamlin Mansion. Thanks to JT Snow, so many people came to the event, including Hunter Pence from SF Giants, Robin Lopez from Portland Trail Blazer, 49ers players, and Miss California Crystal Lee. JT Snow, one of our patients Adam Zawan, Stephanie Snow Gebel and I made speeches, and tried to raise awareness of Wolfram syndrome. The event was a big success. The Snow Foundation’s booth at the American Diabetes Association attracted many physicians and researchers.

I could establish a few collaborations with biotech companies in SF and physicians at UCSF. We are moving to the next step on our quest for a cure for Wolfram Syndrome. I feel that a cure for Wolfram could lead to a cure for diabetes and blindness. Thank you for your support.
