40 years ago Tracy Herbert was told by all the medical experts that she would be dead within 20 years.

She was told she would never be able to have children, and she would die with horrible complications.

In Her Words...

At 17 years old, not one person gave me hope!

Learning to give myself shots was one of the first things I learned after my Juvenile Diabetes diagnosis.

As a senior in high school, I was researching and developing strategies on how to live healthy while all my friends were doing the typical teenage things.

After having two healthy kids, my research became even more diligent knowing that these kiddos needed their mom.

Through the ups and downs of living with Type 1 diabetes, the same thing remains constant over the past 40 years, I research like my life depends on it, because it does.

My first book was published Diabetes Tragedy to Triumph and it became an International Bestseller and I was honored to be asked to speak at Harvard.

These distinguished audience members ask me the same thing as all the medical professionals I come in contact with “how are you still alive” and “what are you doing?”

We all have choices in life and I decided as a teenager I chose to be better and not bitter and still live by that mantra today.

 To “celebrate” the 40th anniversary of my diagnosis I decided to ride my bicycle across the United States starting at the Golden Gate Bridge and finishing the 3,527 mile trek at the Brooklyn Bridge and finished on The Dr. Oz show.

Because of the knowledge, success I’ve gained over the past 40 years, and my desire to help others, I’ve created multiple ways to help you!
