before it’s too late

If you asked me about Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) two years ago, I would have been able to give you some facts and considered myself fairly “knowledgable” about the disease. Oh, how wrong I was.

While I knew so many of the facts, it’s the lived experience that makes it real. I’ve lived side-by-side, doing everyday life, day in and day out, with two people who consider this disease part of their “normal”. Not there’s much of a “normal” once your pancreas kicks the bucket.

While T1D is manageable when caught, there are FAR too many lives lost due to misdiagnosis or completely missed WARNING SIGNS. Most individuals wouldn’t be able to tell you the signs & symptoms that lead to diagnosis and this NEEDS to change. I remember the exact place I was sitting when I found out Keary was diagnosed. No one should ever have to experience those feelings of complete panic and terror. She was diagnosed less than an hour away from death. It’s a miracle she’s even here today.

This PSA is inspired by true events. These are not paid actors…they are survivors, both diagnosed hours from death. We poured our HEARTS into this project.

Watch. Share. Know the WARNING SIGNS.

It just might save you or your loved one’s life…before it’s too late.
