Ellsworth area patient sets $10,000 goal for diabetes cause


A member of this year's Ellsworth High School graduating class, Nathan Brenner was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes five years ago.

After participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk for a Cure the last couple of years, Brenner is now involved in a new local fundraiser. The insulin-dependent teen showed hope last week the foundation's research will pay off for him and the ever-increasing number of other diabetes patients.
