One in five people living with diabetes suffer from damage called diabetic nerve pain. Comedian, actor and host Cedric the Entertainer is personally connected.

Cedric’s father, who is currently living with diabetes, has diabetic nerve pain (diabetic peripheral neuropathy) – often felt as a burning, shooting pain in his feet and hands. And just like any good son, Cedric is using his voice to tell everyone he knows with diabetes that you don’t have to live in pain anymore. BlackDoctor.org recently spoke with Cedric to see why he’s so passionate about encouraging people to start a conversation with their doctors.
