Afterthoughts DSMA Live: ‘Rents | Sandy Struss

Sandy StrussSandy Struss has lived with Type 1 diabetes for 26 years and has dedicated her life to being “a force for good.”  She says that diabetes has given her a profound awareness of her own mortality, and believes that each of us has the opportunity to make a difference in the world with the gifts we’ve been given.

Sandy recognized early on that even though she didn’t like having diabetes, she had a choice to make – she could be bitter because of it, or she could be better in spite of it.  The journey hasn’t been easy, but she’s proud of the woman she’s become.  At 43, she continues to rock life as a “diabadass” and is currently training for her 2nd Tough Mudder obstacle course race.  Professionally, Sandy works as the Marketing Manager for Animas Canada.

Please listen in to the archived show with Sandy and hear about her diagnosis story at the age of 17, how she managed in a different country through her college education and how she became a Tough Mudder Diabadass!
