Founded in October of 2013, Anjellica Sharpe had the vision of helping diabetics maintain a healthy and comfortable lifestyle, while a cure is being found. Hearing fellow diabetes advocates express their journey, a fire ignited in Anjellica to help make a difference. The mission is to Heal, Empower and Educate the life of those affected with diabetes.
Anjellica was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 16 and ever since, wanted to make a difference in others. She grew up watching her grandmother give herself insulin shots, not knowing that would be her reality. Like many diabetics, Anjellica was struggling with paying for the medication she needed to stay alive; insulin. It was at that point she decided to do something about it and start her own non-profit organization, to assist diabetics financially with their medication. Anjellica is a diabetes consultant for the Curing in Heels Program. Her purpose is to make a difference in the lives of those affected with this disease within her community.
