Hi all,
To celebrate my 5 year diaversary (5years since I was rushed into Frimley Park A&E suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis!) I have decided to give something back to 2 charities that have helped me along the way!
5 years = 11,000+ insulin injections, 20+ hospital visits and a couple of near death experiences!!!

Diabetes UK
Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes.
We provide information, help and peer support, so people with diabetes can manage their condition effectively. We are one of the largest funders of diabetes research in the UK.

Our mission: to help people access diabetes technology and support from the NHS – including insulin pump therapy, smart glucose meters and continuous glucose monitoring.
We can help you find out what’s available in the UK, if it might help you and how to access it. INPUT is a UK charity run by insulin pump users and their families.
