Dallas Maverick Jerry Stackhouse recently visited the students at Preston Hollow Elementary in celebration of their annual Diabetes Walk-A-Thon, a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association.

During his visit, Stackhouse, who has lost two sisters to diabetes and now has diabetic parents, talked about how the disease has affected his family.
