Mr. Dash I dont know how to contact you but i was wondering how did you get by with your diabetes when you were a teenager. The reason i ask is because I have a 14 year old son who has had diabetes since he was 7/8years old. I was watching your interview on dlife and notified my son of your condition and he couldnt believe it because he never heard about it and he is a big fan of JayZ and your self. He is really not seeing how severe this can impact his future health. If you have any advice or anything please e-mail me. Thanks for your time and help.
