Diabetes Type: 1
Cory Carpenter, born in Hermiston, Oregon, has lived with type 1 diabetes since he was diagnosed at age 8. Joining his brother and grandmothers, all of whom have type 2 diabetes, Carpenter spent his entire childhood learning how to manage his diabetes alongside his active lifestyle.
