I met a young man in the hospital who was just diagnosed with diabetes. He was 17 years old and extremely overweight, which causes Type II diabetes in children. When we taught him about his diabetes and what he could do to make it better, he took that message to heart. Over the next six months he lost 70 pounds, and his diabetes went into remission. That to me is very inspiring.
