Damon Dash Set To Launch Dash Diabetes Network (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Damon Dash is ready to host the healthy lifestyle centered Dash Diabetes Network.

The Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder is a Type 1 diabetic, so he has firsthand knowledge of living with the disease.

A 1-minute sneak peek video for DDN was uploaded to YouTube.

The clip includes footage of  celebrities, holistic doctors, and others speaking about diabetes.

Dame addresses his new venture on the Dash Diabetes Network website:

This is a place where diabetics are the majority not the minority. We accept imperfections as perfection. We know you are cool with diabetes, and that you can accomplish everything and more. This is about sharing your experience, every diabetic has their own experience but it’s all relatable. No one else knows what having a reaction feels like. This is about never letting diabetes be an excuse not to succeed. If you can apply the discipline you learn from managing diabetes to anything in the world – you will succeed. Diabetes doesn’t stop you but empowers you to live well and strategize. I just got to a place where I can get to a Level 7. I’ve gone through the journey and I want to explain what works for me.

From navigating Harlem to the entrepreneurial life with Kanye, Jay Z, Cam’ron, Roc-A-Fella, Rocawear and directing Kevin Hart’s first movies. I’ve been diabetic all around the world; jail, Saint Tropez, helicopters, China, Africa, Jamaica, boarding school, the principle’s office. I’ve been the bad kid and the good kid, you can be everything diabetic and that’s what I want to showcase.
