Someone posted a questions about kids playing football. My type 1 son was a starter for the Wisconsin Badgers and is now awaiting the NFL draft with promising possibilities. He hopes to write a book about sports and juvenile diabetes. Just for inspiration about what a child with type 1 can do, read: http://writingstraight.com/2012/02/...eams-follow-the-fairytales-as-they-come-true/. Jake mentors children with diabetes, if anyone has a child interested in football who needs a role model.
