Yes I Can was created in honor of Lanesha’s daughter who had heart surgery at 1 month of age. Lanesha’s daughter was later diagnosed with an intellectual Development Disability and has always participated in special education programs from elementary throughout high school. Lanesha felt that the school district(s) failed her child. She had a rough time while the district constantly moved her child from school to school because it was said “they couldn’t teach her child or didn’t have the program that fit her needs”.
