Melissa Lee was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 10 in 1990. Having spent her first 18 years post-diagnosis feeling very alone with the disease and hoping to achieve the control required for a healthy pregnancy with diabetes, Melissa discovered the diabetes online community in 2008 and found her advocacy voice, as well as the glucose control she needed to birth two healthy children. She writes and speaks on behalf of patient needs and is also known for her diabetes-themed music video parodies. Appointed as the Interim Executive Director of Diabetes Hands Foundation in early 2015, she currently resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband, daughter, and son.
Melissa is Tech Editor of ASweetLife and writes the blog Sweetly Voiced.
