Jane believes supporting T1D research and raising awareness is very important. She enjoys participating in all of the JDRF events, and especially loved when she got to cut the ribbon for One Walk. She has also done many fundraisers, her favorite one being a lemonade stand in kindergarten. “I want to help create a cure before anyone else has to suffer through what I and others have.”

Jane loves science, math, bugs, and digging in the dirt. When she grows up, she wants to be an entomologist—her biggest dream is to discover a new type of insect! Jane would also like to write a book about T1D one day, so that others can better understand what T1D is and what it’s like to live with the disease.
