Healthcare company, Sanofi US and Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress Elizabeth Perkins premiered the Diabetes Co-Stars documentary, “Strength in Numbers,” at the American Diabetes Association Expo in Los Angeles, CA this past weekend.
The film, produced by Elizabeth and her ‘co-star’ and husband Julio Macat, features her diabetes story as well as two other inspirational stories from the 2012 Diabetes Co-Stars casting call contest – best friends Amanda Bauer and Anne Casey from New York, and father-daughter duo Eugenio and Naiomi Rivera from Texas.
The pairs were selected because of their empowering stories of dedication and support, with Amanda and Anne giving back to their community by spearheading support groups for youth living with diabetes, and Eugenio and Naiomi guiding one another through their daily diabetes management.[ Also Read: Be Part of the Cure with Diabetes Campaign ] [ Also Read: Diabetic Living in India, Russia and Mexico ] [ Also Read: Music Stars for Life First Diabetes Campaign ] [ Also Read: Now Disney Can Help You Deal with Diabetes ] [ Also Read: Educational E-Book Series for Managing Diabetes ] [ Also Read: Paula Deen Brings Diabetes in a New Light ]
