Our Board of Directors
Elaine Aldrete – Founder
Terry Alaniz – Secretary
Shannon Sosebee – Member
Elaine Clark Aldrete is a dedicated mother and has worked in many capacities with children over the years.
After serving two years on the Board of Directors of the Diabetes Explorer Educational Foundation, Inc., Elaine found herself alarmed at the statistics of childhood obesity. During this period of time, Jacob learned that his Grandfather had Type 2 diabetes; he came to Elaine with his concerns.
Elaine wanted to see a world without childhood obesity and/or Type 2 diabetes. She decided that the place to start was with young children. It had to be informative and fun, thus the book “Does Diabetes Mean You Die?” was written and published.
Born in Claremont, New Hampshire, Elaine now lives in Tucson, Arizona.
Terry Alaniz is a multi-talented wife, mother, businesswoman and community volunteer. After leaving a corporate job in the Telecom Industry Terry now spends her free time volunteering within the Ventura community. She participates in a wide variety of programs that provide support for needy members of our local community. Her commitment to community service includes serving on the Executive Board of the San Buenaventura Women’s Club where she has become a respected club leader and serves on many of the committees.
Terry currently resides in the city of Ventura, California.
We are a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization, our IRS # is 46-0992870.
