At age 18, Bill Manners wasn't ready for the responsibility that comes with being a diabetic. A strict regimen of diet and insulin shots seemed impossible for the teenaged Manners.
"That's not always easy to do, especially when you are younger. You have to watch what you eat and remember your shots. I didn't want to do it when I was 18."

Manners received an Accucheck insulin pump about two months ago. He was the first person to have the procedure done at TRH.
