For Bassett, the subject is one close to her heart as she lost a loved one as a result. Her mother was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and eventually died of heart failure.
One of her regrets is that her family did not realize the connection in time to save her life. She said,
"I wish my family had recognized the link earlier, and that's why I want everyone living with Type 2 diabetes to know about the connection to heart disease and stroke and know that they can do something about it."
