Cheryl Marriott’s luck changed in an instant recently, when Diabetes WA called to inform her that she had won the $10,000 first prize in our raffle.Cheryl Marriott won first prize at the Diabetes WA raffle

“I was sitting in the passenger seat of the car when Helen from Diabetes WA called and asked me if I was sitting down”, Cheryl laughed.

“It’s lucky I was sitting, too, because I’ve never won anything before, so it was very exciting!”

Cheryl’s relationship with Diabetes WA goes back seven years, when her doctor told her she had pre-diabetes. She took immediate action, educating herself by attending a couple of our short courses, and became a member of Diabetes WA.

Nevertheless Cheryl’s prediabetes has progressed to diabetes recently, and she has again stepped up to learn how she can best manage her condition, booking into the DESMOND and CarbSmart workshops.

The $10,000 prize came at an excellent time, as it will be used to buy two plane tickets to Canada so that Cheryl and her husband can visit their son next year.
