Transplant InformationI know, I know. It's been a long time since I last posted. I'm busy looking for a job and I seem to let anything else slide in the meantime.
I came across the blog my new islets. The author Kathy had a pancreas transplant on August 23rd 2008 and is writing about the experience.
That made me realize that the Diabetes search engine wasn't looking at any sites that had information on pancreas transplants. So I spent some time this evening fixing that, and I've added over 20 sites with information about pancreas, or kidney/pancreas, transplants. Many of these are hospitals that have transplant programs.
Since we're going into summer planning. I also added a large number of diabetes camp sites. I was fortunate to get to most of these by using the Children with Diabetes Camps page.
The diabetes search engine now looks for diabetes information on over 1400 sites or pages, including over 450 diabetes related blogs. I have looked at each one before adding it, to make sure they're valid. It's been used over 10,000 times, which means that it now ranks in the Google directories. And it's raised over $150 to support Dr. Faustman's research into a type 1 cure.
Let me know of any ways I can improve this tool for you.
