ARMONK, N.Y. – Westchester County officials recently honored a 13-year-old Armonk girl for her efforts to educate others about Type-1 diabetes, according to theexaminernews.com.

Sarah Ilany, who was diagnosed with diabetes at 11, openly discusses the issues of the illness via her Blood Sugar Cookies account on Instagram, theexaminernews.com reported.

Ilany recently was part of a team that raised $6,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund walk, theexaminernews.com reported.
