The cost of insulin has TRIPLED in the past decade. That is unacceptable.
This year, for my fundraising around Step Out, I want to raise awareness about an issue the American Diabetes Associatin is tackling; insulin affordability.
In the past 10 years, insulin costs have tripled in America. They've doubled in the last 4 years alone. Because of this some people can't afford their insulin. Others travel to Mexico or Canada to buy it. Some are rationing or going without other basic needs, and in some cases they are dying.
For this to be happening in the United States - the richest country in the world - is unacceptable. That is why the ADA is taking a stand, and pushing for hearings to determine why this increase has taken place, and change the laws so insulin is affordable for everyone that needs it.
By supporting my fundraising efforts through Step Out, you help fund our incredible advocacy staff at our Home Office who fight for this issue - and many more related to diabetes.
