Part memoir, part sports adventure, "Not Dead Yet "tells the
inspirational story of Phil Southerland's battle with Type 1
diabetes and how he overcame all odds to start his own bicycle
racing team and twice win the Race Across America. Blindness,
kidney failure and death were all predicted for Phil by age
twenty-five. Today, not only is Phil alive and well but as the
founder of Team Type 1, he and his team of championship
cyclists--many of them diabetics--have become health and fitness
role models for people the world over. Together, they have taken on
some of the most challenging endurance events in the world. Leading
the pack is a serious challenge for any athlete, but for Phil and
his teammates, it presents two daily battles: one to stay in
razor-sharp race-fit condition, the other, to stay alive.
"An engrossing book, a sports adventure story with a medical
subplot and a roster of dynamic characters, the most dynamic of
whom is Phil himself....A story of tigerish determination and the
utter resolve to never give up, to win against all odds."
"A must read for all of us with type 1 diabetes and for our
support team of family and friends as well."--Showbusiness legend
and "New York Times "bestselling author Mary Tyler Moore
"An uplifting and incredibly true adventure of a young man who
beats the odds. Phil Southerland is an inspiration to those who
live and struggle with diabetes as well as any individual who faces
seemingly insurmountable challenges."--Steve Edelman, MD,
University of California-San Diego, Founder and Director of Taking
Control of Your Diabetes
