On the World Health Day, November 14, the diabetes gala is broadcast on TV3 for the second year in a row. Last year's gala was led by Peter Jihde, 47, this time with Molly Sandén, 26.
Molly Sanden was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes six years ago when she was 20 years old. Last year Molly Sandén sang on the bell, telling her she was standing on the stage and crying.
– I was so incredibly worried. Finally, this disease is discussed. Suddenly, there is a room where they can feel full – you can cry and feel that shit.
Molly Sanden explains how life affects the disease.
"I'm thinking of your diabetes 24 hours a day, and I'm constantly recording carbohydrates, thinking about the next time I can eat blood sugar testing, no matter how much I explain to people in my environment, no one actually understands it.
Molen Sandén: "If I Do not Have 100% Can Die"
Molly Sandén deals with artist Danny Sauced, 32, who has great support.
"My husband lives with my diabetes almost as much as he is." He thinks about it, and like other people around me, trying to see signs reminding me to try the sugar where it seems to be low. Here I have dextrose with you. "
What does Danny's support mean?
– Alright. There are many fears of loss of control. If I do not have 100% checks, I can die. It is a fierce line between life and death. Just take the same syringe twice. It may not be that I will not wake up again.
All collected funds from the gallery go to the Diabetes Foundation, which supports research of all types of diabetes.
"There will be a lot of emotions, but the most important thing is not money, not knowledge spreading. For example, too many people do not know how to behave if the diabetes separates.
The Gala of Sugar Disease is broadcast on TV3, Viafree and Viaplay from 20:00 to 22:00 on November 14th.
