Raising awareness of diabetes

Set up by British charity group Diabetes UK, Diabetes Week is the annual focal point for the charity’s diabetes awareness, campaigning and fundraising activities.

This year the Diabetes Week theme is ‘I Can’. If you have diabetes you’ll know that it can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. This Diabetes Week the charity Diabetes UK want stories of all the things you can do and the challenges you’ve overcome.

When things have got tough what have you done to get through it? What will you never let diabetes stop you from doing? Or if you support someone with diabetes, how do you help them along the way?

From 8th –14th June, Diabetes UK are asking you to share your stories of courage and hope in the face of diabetes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #iCan. And don't forget to tag them @diabetesuk so they can join in the conversation.
