It's Not Permanent is a dramatic short film about a teen's positive approach to dealing with type 1 diabetes (T1D).


The short film was written and directed by Rick Hansberry and produced by Be A Giver to share our vision of HOPE for those afflicted with T1D or any illness or difficult situation life throws at them.


The inspiration for the film came from a story that one of our founders (Rachel Sharnetzka) told at a fundraising event for JDRF describing a conversation with her daughter about replacing her daughter's medical alert bracelet with a tattoo. Watch the film to see the daughter's surprising response and to hear her message of HOPE.
