As Noah battled diabetes from nine months of age, complications from the disease were too much for her to overcome. Seeing the gravity of the chronic disease and the resulting daily toll on Noah’s body, her family directs all who feel led to contribute to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in hopes of one day finding a cure for juvenile diabetes.
Harlan Funeral Home is assisting the family and friends of Noah.
