From his mom, Samantha:
My son Talon was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 3 years old. He was in full DKA, blood sugar over 1000, and spent a week at Children’s hospital. He is the bravest, strongest boy I know. T1D is the only life he has ever known and he fights it with a smile on his face everyday. He has to deal with so much more than a child should have to and we are so proud of our little hero.
