Diabetes with "No Limits"

I blogged earlier this month about the inspirational story behind Olympic hopeful Kris Freeman, and in an interview with Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira of NBC's TODAY show, he shares the story of how so many told him about all the things he COULDN'T do once he was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes. Perhaps Olympic courage is best exhibited when athletes like Kris refuse to let a setback like diabetes hold him back from his dreams; then teaches kids at diabetes camp to live their lives without limits.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow (Feb. 15th) to cheer on Kris Freeman in the men's 15K cross country skiing event.
