An illness not a choice
Every 62 minutes
Every 62 minutes, your life could be lost
Every 62 minutes, a family is torn apart
It can happen in 62 minutes
Every 62 minutes, a body is destroyed
Every 62 minutes, guilt goes up
Every 62 minutes, eyes close for the last time
it can happen in 62 minutes
All of this is possible when you don't fight
All of this is possible when the illness consumes you
All of this is possible when you lose control
But you can overcome this,
speak up and get help
Because every 62 minutes instead of a life lost a life can be gained.
Are you HUNGRY?
