Kris Freeman is a cross-country-skier for the United States and also has Type 1 Diabetes. He competes today in about an hour. Reading that article is a great inspiration to me and hopefully to any of you that read it.
kris is AWESOME!! When my daughter saw him she was so excited knowing that he had Type 1 and was still what he loved!! I told her " See, diabetes won't stop you from doing ANYTHING you want!".....She even went to school and told her friends all about him. You would have thought she knew him personally the way she was talking LOL...Its nice though when younger kids with T1 can see the older generations and be so inspired by them!! We will continue to watch his progress at the Olympics. No matter where he places, he will always be a God Medalist to us!!
