I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in middle school- the Diabetes Foundation brought me a backpack when I was in the hospital. Since diagnosis, they stayed in mine and my families lives throughtout the years. Now I am working for this incredible organization with the most wonderful people. I enjoy every minute of my job and can not say enough good things about the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi and the staff. It is an extraordinarily humbling job and changes the lives of Mississippians every day! Join me this year- lets raise awareness and walk for diabetes!
