David was a professional BMX rider at age and was one of the best riders in Spain. David would go on to win races but at the age of 22 things started to change as he began to lose vision in his right eye. He would be diagnosed with diabetes and once his team learned of his diagnosis the team broke his contract.
David is now a member of Team Novo Nordisk and is changing diabetes, David now inspires myself and everyone around the world with diabetes. Below is a post from one of Davids teammates on Team Novo Nordisk.
The next time you have a blood sugar that is higher than you would like or are mad because you have diabetes, remember David and his story. David had the love his life taken away from him and rather than sitting back and feeling bad for himself he fought like hell to be a better cyclist and a better person. David has a chip on his shoulder and will show that anything is possible with diabetes. We all have that power, we can show the world that anything is possible if you have diabetes. It takes a lot of work but just like diabetes if you put in the time and the effort you will see the results. As always thank you to David and Team Novo Nordisk for inspiring all of the people that are living with diabetes!!!
