When Hudson was diagnosed one of the first things the endocrinologist told me was that there is research that stem cells could rejuvenate the pancreas and potentially be a cure sometime in the future. We have never banked cord blood and had HUD been diagnosed after Finley was born, we wouldn't have this time either. But because of the timing we were able to bank hers. Just one of the many ways God has worked in this situation. Finley was named Finley Hope before this happened (for another reason), but we have reason to believe (and hope and pray) that is may turn out she is Hudson's Hope.
