Hello there fellow diabetic family!  My name is Jacob and I’m 16 years old! I was diagnosed October 22, 2012 a day after my dads birthday (hes in the picture)! When I was diagnosed numerous things were going through my head like if I can ever play sports, will I live a long life, etc. Now almost 3 years into it I know that diabetes doesn’t hold me back from anything! The only thing that holds me back is myself!

What is the weirdest question you’ve been asked about your diabetes, and how did you respond?
Is diabetes contagious? I laughed and said no it’s not.

How do you inspire others?
I don’t let diabetes stop me from playing baseball

Tell us a story about how diabetes has affected you.
It has affected me by making more aware of my body and makes me take care of my body better.

Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
100 regular sized duck
