Overcoming adversity. Brandon's survivor story of defeating the impossible with Type 1 Diabetes.

In this episode I talk with a man named Brandon Mouw that shares his story of overcoming Type 1 Diabetes. He was just 3-years-old when he was diagnosed as a Juvenile Type 1 Diabetic.  His journey with Diabetes is a survivor’s story. Growing to become a brittle diabetic, he underwent 9 surgeries, lost a kidney, told that death was imminent, and raised over $250,000 to pay out-of-pocket for a life-saving pancreas-only transplant.
