After being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the age of 7, William has participated in a variety of diabetes related initiatives. He has been a JDRF Walk Youth Ambassador, spoke to his school about his experience with T1D and judged a dance competition fundraiser for diabetes research. In his spare time, he enjoys playing sports and video games, and has been dancing for over 10 years. He hopes continue raising awareness about type 1 diabetes and emphasize how important it is to continue accelerating diabetes research at this year’s Kids for a Cure Lobby Day.
