Mariah is passionate about providing access to insulin and devices to people living with type 1 diabetes to manage their disease more easily! She has been living with type 1 diabetes for 2 years and has organized her own fundraisers to collect donations for JDRF, including a lemonade stand, a carb counted bake sale and a “Guess the Needle Tips” jar. In her spare time, she enjoys being a Girl Guide, playing piano, basketball and going horseback riding. A cure for Mariah would mean not needing to think about how much insulin she needs to eat a cupcake, or always bringing her supplies with her, and being free from worrying about type 1 diabetes.
