Brec Bassinger has been open with fans when it comes to her diabetes and the actress is all about raising awareness. She took to Instagram to share how today marks eight years since she found out she is a diabetic, and she reflected on what she's learned about herself.
"Today, 8 years ago, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Half my life. Because of this I have made friends that I never would have, learned things I never would have, and above all appreciate things like I never would have without having diabetes. When I was diagnosed they told me there would probably be a cure in 5-10 years. Even though there isn't a cure yet, I don't go a day without believing there will be one soon. To another healthy year of being a diabetic ❤️ Xo," she shared, along with a stunning black and white photo.
That is so brave of Brec to share her story and her powerful message. She has taken this diagnosis as a way to really appreciate everything she has in her life, and as a way to really be an advocate for finding a cure. That is something special.
