This week, Mike Avery shares the story of growing up in a family of in-demand Hollywood stuntmen, his dad, mom and brothers are all well known in the industry. Mike was diagnosed with type 1 at age 8, when he was already working. Find out how he learned to manage diabetes while jumping out of planes, off bridges and under pounds of TV makeup. Of course, Mike also has to manage T1D in every day life and shares which is harder, diabetes or death-defying movie stunts.

Plus, week 4 of our coverage of Bike Beyond. Find out why Ryan Dunn got involved less than two years after being diagnosed. Less than a month after diagnosis in college, Ryan left for China on a long-planned trip to study abroad.

In this episode, Stacey also talks about a visit to diabetes camp from American Ninja Warrior Kyle Cochran and an update on T1D's Marathon Man Ross Baker. Baker is on a mission to run a marathon in every US state (and DC). He just checked off Alaska, leaving only Hawaii to go!
