My Story

Diabetes runs in my family. I unfortunately lost my grandmother to this disease.  Many of my family members and friends are affected by this disease as well.  After losing my grandmother, I decided to do more research and get more involved. I wanted to understand why, how, what could I do.  Many people think it’s just bad eating and it’s NOT.  I want to help educate others and hopefully together we can find a cure.

My Grandmother, the reason I got involved with the fight against diabetes!

I created this picture for the Tunnel of Love that the Step Out Fight to Diabetes has at the Step out event! The tunnel of love is a place where you can post pictures of who you Step Out for.
