We Are Better Than This-America is a Non Profit Organization that is raising money for Diabetics and educating Diabetics. Our donations will be going towards the education for Diabetics, assistance with Diabetes copays, and accessibility to Diabetic supplies and technology. We will be educating Diabetics through video content (learn tab) that gives advice on how to manage and live with their Diabetes, especially during times like COVID-19. Our video content also informs Diabetics on other important topics surrounding Diabetes.
Diabetics in the middle class are struggling to afford copays, supplies, and the technology to manage their Diabetes because their incomes do not qualify them for benefits. High deductibles are forcing diabetics to pay out of pocket costs they cannot afford. Lack of supplies and Diabetic technology such as insulin, test strips, finger pricks, and glucose meters causes Diabetics to suffer complications that weakens their immune systems, which makes them more vulnerable to deadly viruses like COVID-19. Also, Diabetics in lower income communities, especially in communities like the black community and other minority communities, cannot get access to the education and technology needed in order to manage their Diabetes. Many lower income Diabetics cannot get access to technology such as Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs), and education such as classes for insulin pumps and Diabetes self-management classes because of financial situations, location, and more. This results in Diabetics missing out on life saving technology and knowledge that helps them maintain controlled blood sugars.
We are here to help end the crisis Diabetics are going through. We want a world in which Diabetics no longer have to worry about financial situations preventing them from having access to the supplies, copays, education, and technology that help them live. We want to raise enough money to provide Diabetics with test strips, finger pricks, glucose meters, insulin pumps, insulin, and more life saving Diabetic supplies and technology. We want to make sure Diabetics are able to afford copays in order to get access to their supplies and other Diabetic resources. We want Diabetics who do not have insurance to have access to supplies in order to manage their Diabetes as well. We want to raise enough money for Diabetics to be able to access insulin pump and Diabetes self-management classes. We want to educate Diabetics so more Diabetics become better at managing their Diabetes and avoid complications that puts them at risk for deadly viruses. We want to save Diabetics' lives!
