In a series of 12 episodes, Podder Talk is featuring interviews between professional snowboarder Sean Busby and inspirational people in the diabetes community. In the fourth episode, Sean interviews Dan Masucci, writer/director of the first narrative film made about type 1 diabetes, “DxONE,” and his son Nick, who plays the lead role in the film.
Dan Masucci made “DxONE” in response to the lack of information and understanding that most people have regarding type 1 diabetes. The film was created to help families affected by type 1 diabetes share their experiences with friends and family members who are not aware of what living with type 1 diabetes entails. Nick, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 11, is both the lead actor and inspiration for the film. Check out the video to learn more.
