Rhonda started life in Ontario, Canada, but as a young child moved with her alcoholic father and three siblings, without their mother, to another province, Alberta. Here she grew up with a father whose neglectful behaviour forced Rhonda and her siblings to fend for themselves. Rhonda took refuge in school and benefitted from the care of teachers who noticed her and gave her opportunities. As an adult, Rhonda was led to Al-Anon by a mentor who recognised her anger as a symptom of the family disease of alcoholism, and through her participation in the Al-Anon fellowship, Rhonda's anger dissipated. She now lives a more balanced and fulfilling life.
