Sue's Story

Sue was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1965 and has seen many changes over the years - she's shared her experiences of her diagnosis, treatment and why she's decided to leave a gift in her Will.

I remember my first syringe was a great big metal thing with a needle the size of a knitting needle. My mother had to keep it in surgical spirits to sterilise it.

Would you consider leaving a gift in your Will?

If you're interested infinding out more about leaving a gift in your Will, or you'd consider leaving a gift to Diabetes UK, please take a moment tolet us know.


What your gift can do

A gift in your Will will make a better future for people living with all types of diabetes. Your gift will:

  1. Continue to fund life-saving research.
  2. Campaign to influence decision makers on issues that are important to everyone living with diabetes
  3. Send children and young adults on life-changing Diabetes UK Care Events, where they learn to manage and thrive with their condition.
  4. Offer education and support to more and more people who need it.

Nearly a third of our work is able to continue because people leave a gift.

We understand that your family and loved ones must always come first. All we ask is once you've looked after those closest to you, that you think about what leaving a gift towards our work could mean for future generations.
