About me

Hi, my name is Tehani I'm 17 yrs old and I live in Perth Western Australia. I come from a small island in the pacific called the Cook Islands. I was born in Rarotonga but raised in Canberra. I live with my mum and I have 7 siblings. I was first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2014 on my way to the Cook Islands for school holidays, we stopped in Sydney and I became very sick then boom in the hospital with Type 1. I'll admit coping with type 1 in the first year were hard for me but now I've overcome it and currently living my best life. 

My Story

I’m doing the JDRF One Walk Step Challenge to defeat T1D! That means I'll be walking 100KM in October to acknowledge 100 years since the ground-breaking discovery of insulin.

Why? To drive progress toward improving lives and defeating T1D, and change the lives of more than 125,000 Australians who battle this disease every day in the process.

Type 1 diabetes can strike anyone at any time, and 8 Australians will be diagnosed today. Diagnosis means a 24/7 fight with no break and facing an extra 180 decisions a day to remain safe and healthy.

DONATE NOW to help the #JDRFBlueArmy and help create a world without T1D. Thank you.
