Hi, my name is La'Miyiah Bounds, and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 4. I am now 13 years old, and every day I see more and more people dying because they cannot afford their insulin medications. It hurts me to know that people are dying for something that should be free. People think that being a diabetic is one of the easiest things in the world, but sadly, it's not. A single insulin pen can cost up to $1,000. The prices of our medications, hospital bills and treatments, and so much more are just absurd! It makes no sense that children and adults are dying because of overpriced medicines. My mother has even struggled at one point in time to pay for my medicine. A single pen of NovoLog costs 123.99 plus tax in most states. This price is totally unacceptable, and I am working towards making insulin free for all insulin-dependent children, teens, and adults. Please sign this petition to make insulin free for everyone in the US.
