Will Cross is a world-class expedition leader and athlete. Raised in England until age 2, Cross has worked continually for more than 30 years to overcome challenges related to living with diabetes. Cross wants to show the millions of people with diabetes that they don’t have to be defined by their disease and that those with diabetes can manage it successfully.
