My son, Jimmy (6), has a friend who asked him if he will always have diabetes. Jimmy said, "No, because if people donate enough money, they will find a cure." Out of the mouths of babes... from his mouth to God's ears!!!
Awesome answer and an awesome kid! You're raising him right! I was talking to a girlfriend just today about my daughter's reproductive future and she said sweetly, because she knew it was really weighing on me today, "Nikki, she's only 16. In 10 or 15 years just imagine the advances science will have made. There may even be a cure." People often say really stupid things to diabetic children and their parents, as I'm sure you've experienced, but today my faith in my friends was renewed :)
