Patient Story

Tanya Yucel

My name is Tanya. I am 48 years old. I was born with a chronic condition called Thalassemia major which also led to me developing diabetes later in life. Over the past 30 years I have worked in both the beauty and photography industry.

I work hard keeping myself as healthy as possible with exercise, healthy eating, meditation and leading a spiritual approach to life. I am lucky enough to be married to a supportive and understanding man. Together we enjoy travelling, long walks, dining out and socialising with friends.

Life is curious, challenging, wonderful and at times surreal. Every day, I am forever grateful.
