To use creativity in navigating the broken American healthcare system. To raise a patient's voice against the shrugging and finger pointing of the medical-industrial complex. To reflect the global consensus that essential medicines are a human right. To restore the longtime historical recognition that medicine is a public good. To get insulin into the hands of diabetics who need it.
#WeAreNotWaiting for Pharma, insurance companies, and the US Federal Government to fix this. We are reducing the financial burden of type 1 diabetes by taking our business elsewhere.
“Many people with diabetes are rationing their insulin and an increasing number of people have died because they could not afford it.”

An America where insulin is free of Big Pharma’s greed, where it is affordable and accessible to diabetics who need it. An end to the compulsory need for a doctor’s prescription to buy insulin in the US. Improvement in health for Americans living with type 1 diabetes, simply through the availability and affordability of the medication they need for life.
