Lodi News-Sentinel

Kelli McGeorge was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes three years ago last month, after she was in a head-on collision. Doctors aren’t sure whether she developed the insulin-dependent disease as a result of the accident, or if it was already developing in her system and the accident and subsequent hospital stay brought it to the forefront. She spent one night in a hospital in Reno — where she was living at the time — under observation, and then went home with some bruises and pain pills.
