article, included in brackets]:

A GREENVALE family is uniting to find a
cure for the disease that claimed the life
of their daughter.

Maria and Guy Molluso's daughter Marina
died from ... [Insulinitis] five years ago,
leaving her family, including her two
young children, heartbroken.

But Marina's five siblings are banding
together and hosting a charity dinner in
their sister's honour, raising awareness
of the disease.

Marina was diagnosed with ... [Insulinitis]
at 14.

She developed cataracts in both eyes by
her early 20s and suffered kidney failure.

In 2006, she was hospitalised with pain
in her quad muscle, which was diagnosed
as ... [a type of High Glucose Conditions]
muscle infarction, a condition suffered by
a handful of people.

Two days after Christmas in 2007, Marina's
heart stopped and she went into a coma.

She spent seven days in intensive care
before dying on January 3 at 31.

One of her sisters, Anna Morello, said Marina
lived life as normal as possible despite jug-
gling hospital admissions with raising her
children, Julia, 14 and Marco, 10, and run-
ning her hairdressing business.
