Although Rupert Grint’s operation started out as self financed, he now receives funding from sponsors such as pharmaceuticals who supply type 2 diabetes treatments, insulin vendors, and leg amputee surgeons.
When asked why he does it Rupert claims he wants to raise awareness about the severity of Diabetes “What better way to raise awareness about something than giving it to the people at 0 cost”
Lawmakers have ignored legislature that would improve the quality of diabetes treatment. Grint plans to change that by giving the disease to their children.
“It all starts with the future generation. When someone’s grandma passes out because of low blood sugar ‘she’s old’ but when someone’s kid does it parent’s push for better quality treatments.
My dream is to eradicate Type 2 diabetes from existence, but first I must give it to every child in the world.
