Divabetic was inspired by the late music legend, Luther Vandross and created in 2005 by Max Szadek, who, as Vandross’ assistant of 14 years, witnessed his boss, mentor, and friend struggle in silence and solitude with the diabetes and its related complications.
Divabetic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to empower women to manage their diabetes self-care with confidence, inspiration and knowledge.
The lead character, Hansel develops diabetes from eating too much of a candy house as a kid. Thanks to Hollywood, our work at Divabetic will never be done!! This kind of ignorance only perpetuates the myths and misconceptions of diabetes. #divabetic
