Playing in the NFL has been a dream come true for KJ Dillon, but his type 1 diagnosis at 19 had him worried his was over before it started. He’ll share how he made it through that tough time and most recently played for Houston Texans.

Plus, Adam Schefter has spent his career covering sports, you probably know him as an NFL insider at ESPN. Adam’s wife Shari has type 1 and he’s taking part in a big contest to help JDRF. Contest info and entry here. Stacey & Adam also talk about the Glucagon App.

Our Community Connection features a diabetes dad running Chicago Marathon. Wesley Bryant says doctors told him not to run, but he didn’t know when to quit; now, neither does his son. More info on the JDRF team and how to donate here.

Shoptalk this week is with Stay Put Medical, a new company that wants to help keep your D-gear stuck.
