The Michelle McGann Fund’s mission and purpose is to empower families with the support and education they need to ensure a health today and tomorrow for their child. Some of the many complications from type 1 diabetes – such as vision problems, blindness, kidney disease, hypertension, amputations and others – can be avoided or minimized when children get the best treatment possible. Further, quality of life improves when type 1 diabetics follow proper preventive and treatment protocols.
The Michelle McGann Fund receives donations and awards grants for furthering juvenile diabetes management in three areas: awareness, education and support. The mission of the Fund is to promote a healthy lifestyle now and in the future for individuals and families dealing with a new type 1 diabetes diagnosis.
“I started playing golf at age 7, and haven’t looked back, even when diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 13. While life is full of challenges, it is also full of joy. I’ve been playing for decades on the LPGA and Legends Tours, and I have loving and supportive family, friends, fans, and supporters like you.”
“It is both a privilege and an honor to be able to generate much needed support to assist children and their families who live day-to-day fighting type 1 diabetes.”
Born out of a desire to advance type 1 diabetes awareness, education and support, The Michelle McGann Fund encourages and supports organizations with similar missions to promote improved diabetic health. Through the judicious use of donations and efficient awarding of funds, it also promotes improved diabetes management.
