Today, we’re introducing you to a REAL MiniMed pumper who is featured on our website. Meet MiniMed Ambassador Jonni Lightfoot . Jonni allowed our photographers to follow him around for a day, so we could get some shots of what his daily life typically looks like. Jonni is a professional musician and travels around 220 days a year! While the photos were taken in his home state of Utah, we were able to get a variety of shots, including how Jonni sleeps with his insulin pump to playing guitar and working out.
Jonni was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 27 years old and began using an insulin pump two years later. Jonni says, “It’s important for me to let people know that diabetes is not a ‘death sentence’ and that you can have it and still have a wonderful, amazing and healthy life!”
On top of playing the guitar, Jonni also plays bass, piano, drums and mandolin. He’s a recording engineer and producer and has two gold records and an Asia Pacific Grammy. When he’s not travelling, Jonni also enjoys mountain biking, scuba diving, and playing basketball. Jonni is also a MiniMed Ambassador .
