In her home on February 2, 2005, Lolo lost her father Luther Milliner, Sr. to type 2 diabetes. After her dad was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the late 90’s Lolo watched her father slowly and painfully lose himself to the complications of diabetes. Lolo recalls her handsome, vigorous, soft-spoken father suffering with kidney failure, blindness and eventually, an amputation from a disease that is all too treatable, manageable and preventable.
Consequently, it has become Lolo’s passion to promote healthy living, bring attention to diabetes awareness and find a cure for the deadly disease. “No one should suffer like my dad and everyone needs to be informed about diabetes”.
Healthy Encores healthcare initiative compliment the Lifestyle Festival. While the 2017 Healthy Encores Lifestyle Festival will spotlight diabetes awareness, management and prevention, other health disparities will be addressed.
Lolo invites you to join her to raise awareness about the complications of diabetes and the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
