Diabetes sucks. Even the word is unattractive. It connotes images of therapeutic socks and band aids. Maybe yesterday diabetes would slow someone down, but not today. Today's research institutes are on the brink of a cure and every year there's a new technological advancement making life with this 'chronic ball and chain' simpler and more bearable.
Approximately 1.25 million Americans have Type 1 Diabetes and more than 208,000 are under the age of 20*. It's hard enough to get your kids to remember to brush their teeth! Imagine chasing them around with a needle 5 times a day. Well, we say huck that. Carb counting should be reserved for dieters. Diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States* and we're looking to bump it off the top 10 list.
The fact of the matter is that people all around the world, especially people with diabetes who can relate to Huck Faters, just want to be able to live their lives and live it by their own rules.... without having anything in the way. They don't have the time for all the finger pricks and insulin draws, looking like you're running a mini meth lab in the middle of a restaurant just so you can feed yourself.
We say Huck Diabetes.
Order Huck Faters clothing and we will donate 7% of the net proceeds to the JDRF whose charitable purpose is to find a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications through the support of research.
