Age at diagnosis: 5
Lives in: Victoria, BC
Sage has been passionately involved with JDRF since she was diagnosed 9 years ago, with volunteering for the annual JDRF Promise Ball and participating in the JDRF Walk since 2012. She has been actively advocating in her community by speaking to her MLA about living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to the BC government for CGM and FGM coverage. When she is not busy advocating, she enjoys reading, drawing, playing the piano and saxophone and laughing with friends. Sage would celebrate a cure because the only thing she wouldn’t know about her T1D is how to live without it.
Hey good people of Twitter, Sage is again looking to be one of @JDRF_Canada’s #T1Dchampions. She wants to speak to our country’s leaders to advocate for Canada to continue to fight for a cure. pic.twitter.com/ENzBPxmgZ3— Graham Stobbe (@GrahamStobbe) August 26, 2020
