A mother's Facebook post is going viral for highlighting the impact of Ontario Premier Doug Ford's cuts to health care for those living with chronic conditions.

Sarah Elizabeth took to social media after her daughter Brier, a type 1 diabetic, avoided a near-fatal health scare thanks to Dexcom CGM, a life-saving wearable device that continuously monitors glucose levels.

Earlier this month, just a half an hour after her last glucose reading for the night, Sarah received an urgent notification from her daughter's device that her glucose levels had dropped to dangerous levels.
