Sports reporter Marty Hastings catches up with Kamloops Blazer Jordan DePape.

For the past couple years, Jordan has had the chance to tour around the country with country music star George Canyon.

The tour is called the George Canyon and Friends Diabetes Heroes Tour.

Jordan usually comes out on stage and tells his story and, of  course, George plays some of his hits and talks about his own battle with the disease.

Marty shares Jordan's story with Daybreak Kamloops host Shelley Joyce.
