    This 57-year-old wife, mother, and grandmother diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 17, was given no hope for a healthy life, yet here, to celebrate her 40th year of living with Diabetes, she triumphs as her legs carry her across 3,527 miles. She meets many people along the way whose lives have been touched by Diabetes either in themselves or in someone they love. Tracy also forms a plan for her foundation (Diabetes Technology Advocacy Foundation) as she pedals across incredibly difficult terrain. 

    Tracy not only beats the odds of her diagnosis over 40 years ago, but proves that a diagnosis does not mean the end of hope. Tracy’s message of hope and healthy living is spread throughout these pages. This grandmother of five continues to teach others how they can enjoy the same hope that she has come to cling to through this book, her webinars, podcasts, and personal coaching. The question is, “Are you ready to go for a bike ride?

      Tracy’s first book, "Diabetes Tragedy to Triumph", quickly became an International Bestseller.  Tracy tells her own story of how she discovered she had diabetes, and explains her diabetes journey of over 40 years, which led to how she became a leading authority on diabetes, health, and wellness. The idea for this book came from Tracy's Endocrinologist (a physician who specializes in diabetes management), who suggested Tracy write a book based on her decades of researching and practicing strategies that helped her outlive her life expectancy by over 20 years.


      This well-written book helps to educate newly-diagnosed people with diabetes, or those who just want a clearer picture of how to manage the disease well, in everyday terms. It is estimated that one in four people have prediabetes and do not even know it, and that over 29 million Americans live with it. Tracy uses her passion and gift of encouragement to offer simple strategies in this book to those struggling to get control of their lives-the healthy way. The strategies outlined in this book can help readers to prevent or control their diabetes. 


      If facing diabetes, Tracy suggests taking this book to your doctor, and ask them to look it over. Every doctor who has reviewed her book says, 'this is exactly what they tell their patients and wish they would practice.' 


      One doctor even said, “I wish you would just come sit in my waiting room every day and share your wisdom with my patients. They probably wouldn’t even need me.”
      In 118 pages, Tracy is able to summarize the strategies she’s employed, to help others. Her nearly 40-years-of-research helps the reader to understand and apply in a short-read what has helped Tracy deal with this difficult disease with no complications. 


      Shortly after writing this book, and to prove her health and wellness strategies work, Tracy completed a solo continuous 3,527-mile bicycle ride across the United States. Tracy has a B.S. in psychology, is a trained wellness coach and certified personal trainer, and helps people from all walks of life. The focus of her coaching practice is working with clients newly diagnosed with prediabetes, struggling to take control of their Type 2 diabetes, and simply wanting help living a longer heathier life.
