Professional NBA player Adam Morrison inspires

Being a leader in his college years at not only Gonzaga University but the entire NCAA, Adam Morrison has left his mark in the basketball world. He is now playing for the Charlotte Bobcats and was the 3rd overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft. If you watch ESPN, chances are you have heard of this guy. Here is something you may not know about him though, he was diagnosed with diabetes in the 8th grade.

At the age of 13, Adam was playing in a game that went into overtime and began displaying seizer-like symptoms. It was then that he was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with diabetes. Despite this news, it had never stopped him from working hard and achieving his dream to play in the NBA. His next goal of an NBA championship may not be that far off with his heart and attitude.

Famous People with Diabetes

I found a pretty cool blog post at tudiabetes.com that discusses Famous People with Diabetes. It starts off with someone writing a short post and listing a couple (Mary Tyler Moore and Bret Michaels) and the community goes on into a great discussion with famous diabetics. I had no idea Luther Vandross and Patty Labelle had diabetes. I was however, aware of Halle Barry. It’s a cool post. Check it out when you have a second.
