Caleah has been living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for five years. She is very active in her community and participates in awareness activities at school to teach others about the impact T1D has in the lives of those affected. Caleah met with the federal candidates in her riding during the JDRF #VoteTypeNone campaign to urge them to support people affected by type 1 diabetes. Research is important to Caleah because it helps improve the quality of life for those affected by T1D and helps move us closer to a world without the disease. She enjoys reading, writing, theatre and volleyball. She hopes to become an actress, a writer or an interior decorator.
