Ben Vereen

Ben Vereen learned he had type 2 diabetes in 2007. The Broadway star and singer now works with Taking Control of Your Diabetes, a non-profit dedicated to empowering people living with the disease. Their latest initiative, Start Taking Action Now for Diabetes (S.T.A.N.D.), includes public service announcements featuring Vereen and others who've refused to let the condition hold them back.
