When Juno was 11 months old, she was the youngest person in the state of Nevada with T1D. Now, a confident kindergartener, Juno has some big dreams. “When I grow up, I want to go see lots of new places and meet new friends,” she shares. “I want to learn how to swim and how to play piano and play golf.” She also loves all animals (including her stuffed animals), making cards for her friends and family, dressing up in costumes, attending school, and practicing gymnastics. Juno spreads the word about T1D by appearing in videos for her local JDRF chapter, and she has also proudly attended every JDRF Walk and JDRF Gala since her diagnosis.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
