William Rounds, Type 1 for 87 years

William Rounds (1922-2010) was diagnosed with diabetes in 1923, only 2 years after insulin was discovered. He was T1 for 87 years the year he died. In 2008 William was one of eleven interviewed who had lived for 60+ years with T1D. I was one of the eleven. The stories were published in Oct, 2008 in the Diabetes Forecast, the American Diabetes Association's magazine. That was the month that the Diabetes Forecast celebrated its 60'th anniversary.
