"For Army veteran Diana Rider, baking for Lillie Pad Creations, her Madison Heights business, symbolizes more than breakfast treats and birthday cakes. It’s the activity that brings peace to her mind in the midst of post-traumatic stress disorder."

Local reporter Nicole Steenburgh spent the afternoon with me in my kitchen.  Discussing my battle with PTSD and the journey I have taken to get to where I am provides me the opportunity to reach out to others to educate them about PTSD.  Whether it is a fellow military member battling his or her demons or a civilian trying to understand more about this growing problem, I want to let others know that they are not alone.

My life is what it is today because of the Semper Fi Fund and its programs.  This organization has helped me transition through the last few years of changes and has supported me in ways I will never be able to repay.  Thank you is not enough for them.  This small but extremely dedicated organization has not only helped me but my daughter also.  She is on this journey with me and the Semper Fi Fund makes sure that she is not forgotten.  

Because of their extreme generosity in helping me, ten percent of all my sales goes to the Semper Fi Fund to help other veterans find the comfort I have thru the Jinx McCain Horsemanship Program and the drive I found again thru the Apprenticeship Program. Please check out Semper Fi Fund and consider donating to their efforts to help veterans.
