I always like to share stories of other PWDs, especially those that help inspire the rest of us. Phil Southerland is the founder of Team Type 1. Team Type 1 originally started as a team of championship bike racers, but has expanded to include other athletes, including a triathlon team. Phil recently published a book, Not Dead Yet – My Race Against Disease: From Diagnosis to Dominance. Phil was diagnosed with Type 1 at 10 months old. His book talks about his struggles growing up with diabetes and his triumph over it.
You can read Chapters 1 and 2 of Not Dead Yet on the Team Type 1 website here. The information about the book on the website can do it much more justice than I can possibly do here. I plan to read it and from what I have seen so far, it looks like a very good read.
