Macy is an avid softball player, she currently plays for one of the top softball programs in the country, playing in tournaments nationwide. Someday, she wants to be the first Olympic softball player with T1D. Since she was diagnosed with T1D at age seven, Macy and her family have done everything they can to ensure she gets to achieve every goal she sets, despite T1D. Macy says, “my dreams for the future include being an Olympic gold medalist, but my biggest dream is waking up one morning to find a world without T1D.” In her spare time, she enjoys vlogging about everything from life with T1D to makeup tutorials.
