Danyla has been living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for over two years. She is happy to participate in Kids for a Cure Lobby Day to lobby the Government and advocate for T1D. For Danyla, finding a cure would mean having a pancreas that produces insulin and no longer having to prick her finger to check her blood glucose levels or inject herself with insulin every day to survive. Despite the numerous challenges of living with T1D, Danya is a happy girl with a bright future. She is a tier-one basketball player and would love to become a nurse.
