"Heeling Diabetes" Recap


I was an official & proud sponsor for the Heeling Diabetes Event. The event was held at Shula's 347 Grill Buckhead.

 At this event, shoes are audition off and sold to the highest bidder and the funds are raised to help find a cure for Diabetes.
 
 
"Heeling A Nation One Shoe At A Time"


The Heeling Diabetes Foundation is very dear to my heart as my husband and my in-laws suffer from Diabetes. This is just my way of giving back... so I'm VERY supportive of this foundation.

Tashmir Parks w/ daughter Azaria (8 years old) sharing her story of how she just recently found out that her daughter (pictured) was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes.
Mother & Daughter
Yes, she is only 8 yrs. old and she now takes shots 4 times a day and has to test her blood sugar as many times too.

She is a Sweetheart!
I whispered in her ear that: We will NOT let this disease control us! And, she agreed.. we will continue to FIGHT for a cure!

I ran into a few blog buddies and socialites that I highly adore:
