Our Mission: Macey's Believers - Supporting T1D Families.
It is our mission to provide a Supportive community for T1D's and their families. We do so through Education and Research. We fundraise for Diabetes Research and to provide Scholarships for Children with Type 1 Diabetes and their families to attend Children with Diabetes Friends for Life Conference.
Hello my name is Janice Gaskins, President of Macey's Believers, Inc. and I'm mom to Macey, Macey was diagnosed at 13 months old, she is now 16 1/2 years old. A year later Macey's Believers was formed as a walk team to raise money for diabetes research. We've raised over $ 185,000.00 so far and will continue until we have a CURE! We began attending Children with Diabetes Friends for Life conference, when Macey was 3 years old, and every other year after that. Due to financial constraints, it can be difficult for a family to afford attending CWD FFL. In 2015, on our way back home from conference it hit me, there is NO reason why families should not be able to attend. We, in order to offset some of the expense, raise the money to pay the conference fees. That was why Macey's Believers became a 501 (C) (3) non profit, to help those families! Children with Diabetes Friends for Life Orlando International Conference has world-renowned clinicians, researchers, physicians, informing T1D families about current information in Type 1 diabetes care. Families attend educational sessions and get cutting-edge diabetes management ideas and updates on ongoing research for a cure. They also participate in discussion groups, share stories, and help motivate and support others who walk in similar shoes. This is an inspirational and life changing experience for Type 1 families!
Macey's Believers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit charity organization supporting research, education and Type 1 Families! All donations are tax-deductible :) Please visit our website Maceysbelievers.org. , Macey's Believers, Inc. Facebook page and Instagram page for more information. Thanks for your support!
