Our Heroes Film
We share some of our success stories from DRWF-funded research and support, including the life-changing results from our Islet cell Isolation Facility in Oxford, providing hope for a future cure.
Success stories feature in new DRWF documentary film, highlighting need to continue funding research in the UK.
The 'Our Heroes' video, launched this World Diabetes Day, highlights success stories from DRWF-funded research and support:
Ann and Katie feature in a new film, launched on World Diabetes Day, to talk about their lives and how they manage their diabetes. It’s part of a DRWF campaign to highlight the continuing need to fund diabetes research in the UK and raise awareness to the impact of DRWF’s work as the charity approaches its 25th anniversary year.
The film also features Claire Levy (62), who has been living with type 2 diabetes for five years.
Claire, who works at DRWF as Head of PR and Communications, said: “Diabetes is a long-term condition, however there is every opportunity to live as well as possible. For me, losing weight and increasing my activity has made a difference to my day-to-day life.
“The more you understand about the condition the better your health will be. DRWF has some fantastic resources to help you manage your diabetes and reduce the risk of complications. I’m still living with diabetes, but I’m living well.”
The new DRWF film provides a positive look at living with diabetes, and the difference that our donors’ gifts make to enable work such as this to continue. So much more work needs to be done to maintain momentum and keep this programme moving forward. We can only do that with the continued support of generous and committed donors.
