Life for a Child Video

When I saw the exhibit on the discovery of insulin at the New York Historical Society back in October there was a short movie playing as part of the exhibit. I watched it all. The video was titled Life for a Child and was a look at what children in third world countries have to go through in order to get the very basic in diabetes care: insulin. It was moving, appalling, and touching.

Just the other day I got an e-mail that notified me that you can actually watch this film for FREE on Hulu by going HERE or that you can buy it ($9.99) or rent (3 day rental $2.99) it by visiting Amazon HERE. I've also put a the video (from Hulu) at the bottom of this post. I suggest you watch it if you haven't had the chance to do so yet. You may look differently at you own health and I can assure you that you will be thankful for whatever access to diabetes supplies that you may have.

The video is about half an hour long. Enjoy.

Also, tonight at midnight CST is the last chance to enter for a chance to win a FREE Stick Me Designs bag. Go to my post for more details. :)

Too bad the video will only stream in the USA and I am in Canada.
