Local teen with Type 1 diabetes cannot go away to attend college without medical support
Scott Arnold, an 18-year-old track athlete from Deruyter, will graduate from high school on June 28 and plans to pursue at degree at SUNY ESF this fall. His Type 1 diabetic condition, however, makes it difficult to lead a normal life and often jeopardizes his safety. The Arnolds think they have found a solution that will allow Scott to attend college — the purchase of a diabetic “alert dog” to help monitor Scott’s glucose levels. The only problem is that it will cost $18,000. In order to keep Scott safe and allow him to attend college, the Arnolds have created a GoFundMe page to raise the necessary money he needs to buy the alert dog.
