Transcend Warrior – Diana Kozyrenko

My Story:

It’s hard, especially when you using insulin. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and as a result of surgery (removed 50% of pancreas) I got diabetes. From a healthy person I became a sick person. Every day testing blood sugar and making insulin shots makes your life not a walk in the park. But I’m still alive and very optimistic.
