Shay has had type 1 diabetes (T1D) for almost her entire life, after being diagnosed at 7 months old! She has been involved with JDRF by participating in the annual JDRF Walk since 2012 and was an ambassador at the Galas. Her hobbies include playing sports, such as hockey, tennis, and basketball. Both of her two younger brothers also have T1D, so she hopes for new research developments to make their lives easier and to eventually find a cure.
