Four Tuscon girls are “ All About That Cure ”
Four young girls from Tucson, Arizona have created an adorably original way of creating diabetes awareness.
The girls, aged between seven and nine, covered Meghan Trainor’s smash hit “All About That Bass” with rewritten lyrics.
“ All About That Cure ” remixed
Their remixed song, titled “All About That Cure” provides an informative and witty spin on the song, with all the lyrics based on what people with diabetes have to go through each day.
Among these lyrics include: “I’m all about that pump and testing”, and “All the right carbs, the right calculations”.
The video has gone on to receive over 47,000 views on YouTube, while the girls have been featured on local news sources given the viral success of their video.
“All About That Cure” is the creation of Sarah Willems, the mother of one of the girls in the video, Katherine, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of two.
According to Willems, it was a perfect time to shoot the video. “I was afraid that after the Ice-Bucket Challenge, people’s pockets would not have been as loose as they were in the past couple of years,” she said.
Every year in the United States, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. According to the Tuscon chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, roughly 35,000 people in Arizona live with the disease.
With organisations around the world looking to advance developments towards a cure for diabetes, this video could prove invaluable in raising diabetes awareness.
As the video grows in popularity, more people will watch and learn of some of the daily afflictions that people with diabetes endure on a daily basis.
If that encourages them to donate money towards funding research developments, then this video could be a great source in generating finance for clinical trials of potential cures for humans.
As intelligent and cute as this music video is, it may also come to be of benefit to everyone that has a relationship with diabetes across the world.
