Tony Cervati: A Type 1 Hero

If you don't know the name Tony Cervati , then today is the day to change that.

He's an amazing biker and a huge influence in the Type 1 community.

He is Type 1 Rider.

Every day Tony shows that it's possible to THRIVE with Type 1.

He's very open about his diabetes.  Always posting his BG on Facebook.  The highs, the lows and everything in-between.

Sometimes I'll share that with Matthew and I think it's helping him to realize that his BG number is just information. Correct or treat and move on.

One last thing that I really like about Tony?

He's simply a nice guy.

Tony has over 3,000 friends on Facebook, but when Matthew sent him a question--- Tony actually responded.  And not a 2-word answer.  He really answered Matthew's question.

A few months later, I had a question.  Again, Tony gave me the most thoughtful and encouraging response.

But here's the exciting part!

Tony is about to embark on an amazing bike journey that you won't want to miss.  It's a documentary project entitled "Type1Rider: The Film."

Here is a GREAT video that's sure to inspire you.  Please take a few minutes and watch!  Matthew loved it!!
