WALKING FOR AWARENESS: TYPE 1 DIABETES

Cameron Crouse has been living with Type 1 Diabetes for 14 years, but that’s not stopping him from living his life.

“I like to live as it not being a roadblock,” he said. “I like to try to live in a way that is just like any other person without Type 1 Diabetes.”

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation held its annual One-Walk in Birmingham in order to raise awareness on Type 1 Diabetes.

Crouse said he has multiple routines that he has to go through in order to stay healthy, one includes wearing a continuous glucose monitor. He said his support system makes everything easier.

The organization raised $130,000 and hopes to raise $205,000 by June.
