Angela Sipes from Seattle was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 11. For many years, the disease was uncontrollable and eventually caused her blindness, kidney disease, infertility and nerve damage.  Sipes, 32, amazingly reversed these conditions and now lives a healthy life. Wanting to give back, Sipes, who was treated at a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Seattle, registered to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon to raise funds for the hospital network that supported her.
