Max McGee Fund for Juvenile Diabetes Research
Max McGee, the famous Green Bay Packer, is most remembered for Super Bowl I where he scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl history. He played in two Pro Bowls and on five World Championship teams. He is also known for his color commentary on the Green Bay Packers Radio Network. But Max would prefer to be known for his contribution to finding a cure for juvenile diabetes and providing a better quality of life. He started The Maxi Fund after his youngest son, Dallas, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of two.
The Max McGee Research Center is associated with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Together they are committed to establishing an internationally recognized center for diabetes research. The Maxi Fund will provide the means to establish and sustain a state of the art research center dedicated to helping children with diabetes.
There are many different areas of diabetes research; however, the main focus of this research center will be to find a cure for diabetes. Some theories to be further explored include:
- Transplant of pancreatic insulin secreting beta cells
- Genetic insertion of insulin or immune genes
- Manipulation of the immune system
