Famous Friday: Scott Dunton
Scott Dunton is a professional surfer ranking at 119 in the world. He was 16 years old when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He didn’t do well with the news of having diabetes. He thought if he didn’t care of it, then it would just go away. But with the help if his doctors he has learned to manage his disease and live a somewhat normal life.
Dunton is involved in many diabetes organizations including: Children With Diabetes, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The PADRE Foundation, and the American Diabetes Association. He has also help to put on a Surfing with Diabetes camp for kids with diabetes. With being involved of all of these different organizations Dunton has become an inspiration for a lot of kids with diabetes. I hope one day I can be an inspiration to people with diabetes like Scott Dunton.
