My story began when I was 8 years old.  I was diagnosed with Type 1, Juvenile Diabetes.  Learning how to give myself shots on a daily basis was very difficult for me.  My Mom and Dad helped me so much along the way.

 

Growing up with diabetes made me feel different at times.  The daily shots, watching my diet and feeling bad made it hard to fee normal.  My family and friends were so supportive each step of the way.  I continued to work hard in school and I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with a degree in Psychology.  I soon met my husband Brent, and we were ready to live happily ever after.

 

This is where my story takes a difficult turn.  My diabetes was getting so bad that I had to start dialysis for 5 hours each day, 3 days a week.  I needed a kidney transplant, so my brother donated one of his kidneys to me and I was so grateful.  My body, on the other hand, rejected it, so back on dialysis I went.  The next several years, I spent my time playing with my 6 beautiful nieces and nephews:  Kaylee, Hunter, Emma, Grace, Lillie, and Hudson, and they made me so happy.  Of Course, I spoiled them rotten every chance I got.

 

Life stated to get a little more challenging in my forties.  I was still going to dialysis 3 days a week, having multiple surgeries on my eyes (including 2 cornea transplants) and the amputation of my right leg, but I never gave up.  My body decided it had had enough after fighting for 47 years, and I went to heaven to be with Jesus on April 25, 2014.  To the end, I never gave up the fight.  This store was opened by my two sisters-in-law to represent my 6 beautiful nieces and nephews and me…LISA MARIE.  My favorite animal was the giraffe (thanks to my Aunt Mickey)!  I had at least a hundred giraffes at home that made me smile when I looked at them each and every day.

 

I want you to remember to never give up!  Life is a gift!  Please try to make a difference each day!  Happy Shopping!.
