I have been a member of the American Women's Association, an Auxiliary of the RCH since moving to Melbourne. All of the RCH Auxiliaries and the RCH Foundation have been such a powerful group of people and I thank them all for their continued support. Managing diabetes is a daily trek with challenges and successes that can arise out of nowhere. It is a long haul over a lifetime and the physical struggle is only one aspect. Staying mentally on top of it becomes an endurance race. My interest is both personal and professional. This trek will document the challenges I face to manage my own type 2 diabetes during the trek. Professionally, I have researched disability rights in South East Asia.
