My name is Lanee and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on December 2, 2018. It was a little hard to deal with at first, but I've overcome some of my fears and I'm pretty confident with managing this disease with the help from my family and friends.
I would like anyone to be able to support me in Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes® because this cause is very important. I joined because it is one of the best ways to make a difference in people’s lives.
I walk because today alone over 4,110 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease.
When you donate:
You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
You fund life-saving research.
You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes to live well.
By walking in this event, I hope to inspire others to join me to walk and raise money.
Thank you for making a donation and or walking for a cause that is so important to me.
