Hello again! I am so pleased to share this mini documentary from NowThis with you! We filmed this back in February, but it just aired on 6/17/19. It all came together so naturally! Ciara, the producer and narrator, happened to ask a friend if he knew anyone with diabetes who could shine a light on this topic. He said no but that he knew someone who knew someone! How serendipitous! The someone that Ciara’s friend knew just happens to be friends with my ex-boyfriend and follows me online. She made the connection and VIOLA! Here we are with this amazing story. I am so proud of Ciara for all the hard work she put into this video. It was all her idea and she doesn’t even live with diabetes. She just knew there was an injustice happening and wanted to spread the word. Thank you, Ciara, for taking a stand for us all! Also can we applaud this all female crew!?
PS. After this video aired, many people have come out to offer help. I just want to state that I am doing ok. I am very privileged to have access to insulin even though the high cost hurts! If the cost hurts me, imagine how it hurts others. This story is to open the eyes of the world to know that this is a greater issue. The fact that insulin should not cost this much no matter what!
Thank you for watching and I hope you enjoy!
