Dustin is passionate about research. Here’s why.
Why is Research Important to You?
Since I’ve been diabetic for nearly 27 years, I am a big supporter of stem cell research. I’ve seen a lot of advances in science in regards to diabetes ever since I got it when I was 14.
I know what it is like firsthand to live with something that I didn’t ask for. There are some days when I have to force myself to go out and do things, I mean I got a 6-year-old son I have to take care of. I got to go to work. I got to do normal life things every day, and it can be hard a lot of times with diabetes.
I’ve always donated blood. I’ve been donating whole blood and platelets ever since I was a teenager in high school. I had no idea that StemExpress existed, but I fell in love with it right away. I have been able to help not one person, but countless amounts of people.
