AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - One Augusta teen is doing all she can to raise awareness for Type 1 Diabetes and she is making an impact right here in the CSRA.
On September 13, 2013 Caroline Dorn's life was changed forever. Pneumonia plagued her body for six weeks and she lost a lot of weight in a short period of time.
And her work has not stopped there. This year Caroline Dorn also went to the capitol to personally speak to the congressmen and senators about renewing The Special Diabetes Program. The Special Diabetes Program is 150 million dollars given yearly to research finding a cure for Type 1diabetes. Dorn says she will continue to raise awareness so that others can too become a champion of this disease.
