In "Just Like You - Diabetes," four remarkable children team up with a former Miss America and a baseball Hall of Famer to shed light on life with Type 1 Diabetes. This documentary delves into their personal journeys, painting an inspiring portrait of resilience and camaraderie.
Sierra Adams, Jack Bichelmeyer, Garrett Brown, and Grace Chisholm lead the narrative, with supportive insights from their closest pals: Zenia Amrolia, Peter McLiney, Kirby Motsinger, and Jake Smith. Together, they navigate the highs and lows of their condition, emphasizing their shared experiences with peers.
Nicole Johnson, a renowned diabetes advocate and JDRF National Director, not to mention a former Miss America, and the legendary baseball player George Brett, step in to lend their voices to the cause. They offer a deeper understanding of Type 1 Diabetes, its management, and the essence of fostering supportive friendships for those affected.
With this being the 10th film in its repertoire, Just Like You Films, in collaboration with JDRF (jdrf.org), embarks on a mission. The goal? To rally communities worldwide, encouraging empathy, education, and acceptance for those with diabetes.
"JLY-Diabetes" is a testament to the indomitable spirit of children with diabetes, proving that they are not confined by their diagnosis. They are, fundamentally, just like everyone else.
