Summary "When Phil Southerland was a seven-month-old infant, he had lost ten pounds in a week, his body was limp and his breathing slowed to a sickening wheeze. His mother rushed him to the ER, where she was informed that tiny Phil displayed the youngest case of diabetes the hospital had ever seen. Blindness, kidney failure and death were all predicted for him by age twenty-five. Flash forward twenty-seven years. Not only is Phil alive and well but, as the founder of Team Type 1, he and his team of championship bike racers--most of them diabetics--have become health and fitness role models for diabetics the world over. Not Dead Yet is his powerful story: the story of Phil's relationship with his mother, and how she struggled to keep him alive; of how he grew up, facing his diabetes head on; of how he fulfilled his dream of becoming a professional athlete and came to inspire thousands of individuals and families battling diabetes that their dreams could come true, too"--Provided by publisher.
