We, Donna and Brian Meads-Barlow, would like to thank everyone involved in supporting the establishment of the DANII Meads-Barlow Foundation (DANII). We hope you will continue to support us and help prevent tragedies such as the loss of our beloved daughter. Our special thanks go to so many people, too many to name individually. Our heartfelt thanks to you all.
Our mission is ongoing, and we’ll continue for as long as it takes to make the difference – to help save lives by introducing alarm technology into as many households as necessary and create diabetes awareness among the community.
DANII was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was only FIVE years old.
Despite having to prick her finger several times a day, to take her blood glucose (sugar) levels, and have several daily injections of insulin (and later manage her insulin pump), this talented young lady led a full, action packed life. She was extremely popular and excelled in many things.
A very talented singer – she was a leader of the Australian Girls Choir and had aspirations to make singing & song writing a career.
A LIFE CUT SHORT – Sadly all her dreams were shattered on November 8th 2011 when DANII lost her life as a consequence of Diabetes Mellitus. She went to bed a happy, beautiful teenager and never woke up.
She was just SEVENTEEN and had everything to live for. Her family will never, ever be the same.
Her brothers have lost a wonderful, vibrant sister and friend, her parents have lost their beloved and only daughter. People who knew her, knew they lost a best friend too.
This trauma CAN BE AVOIDED and the DANII Meads Barlow Foundation is determined to help stop another tragedy like DANII’s ever happening again in Australia.
As a legacy to DANII, the DANII Meads Barlow Foundation was created to help make a difference.
JOIN US AND HELP PREVENT ANOTHER DEATH.
Help prevent the unimaginable.
