Stem Cell Research Issue Personal for Utah Family

WEST JORDAN, UTAH -- Three-year-old Cody Anderson, son of Kenneth and Pamela Anderson of West Jordan, Utah, was sent to Washington DC in June to represent Utah children with diabetes as the Congress debates the issue. Cody was sent to DC by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International, which believes stem cell research may provide a cure for the debilitating disease. The Andersons support the research and hope that it can soon make a difference for them and their son. Cody has his blood tested several times a day and his parents must be very careful with his diet because of the disease. About 16 of every 100,000 children in the US are diagnosed with diabetes each year. While in DC, the Anderson family met with Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and celebrities that support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation like actress Mary Tyler Moore.
