Rev. James Patterson and his grandson, Donovan - practicing for services at Institute's Nazarene Church -- share a passion for music. They also share type 2 diabetes. Donovan, 16, is one of a growing number of young Americans diagnosed with a deadly disease that used to be called "adult onset."
When Donovan Patterson, 16, plays music, he can forget he has diabetes. Otherwise, "it's there, always there, that thought: I'm stuck with diabetes for the rest of my life."
