Lakeville teen starts diabetes support site

HELPING TEENS FACE DIABETES: Lily Jeswald  is a 13-year-old Lake­ville girl with big dreams. For one thing, she wants to be a professional singer, and is taking steps to get there. More immediately, she wants to give a forum to other young people with diabetes, which she was diagnosed with at the age of 4.  

She started a Facebook page, Teens Talk to Teens About Diabetes, to give children ages 13 to 18 a place to share their thoughts on their fight against the disease.
