Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation offer FREE diabetes awareness necklaces and medical check-up cards to anyone requesting them.
At DRWF we encourage anyone with diabetes, especially those prone to experiencing hypoglycaemia, to wear or carry this type of identification.
These necklaces, which can be worn discreetly under clothing, are designed to alert anyone providing emergency medical assistance to the condition of the individual. This can help speed up diagnosis and treatment considerably and could even mean the difference between life and death.
Testimonials from people newly diagnosed with diabetes
“Paramedics said it was such a great help seeing the necklace and treating the patient accordingly”
“The diabetes awareness necklaces are a brilliant idea”
At DRWF we encourage anyone with diabetes, and especially those prone to experiencing hypoglycaemia, to wear or at least carry, this form of identification.
To order your FREE necklace/medical check-up card please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 023 9263 7808. You will also receive the regular Diabetes E-News (you can unsubscribe at any time).
The charity is able to offer this necklace FREE of charge as part of our outreach programme. However, we receive no government funding and as we distribute over 3,500 necklaces per year, to enable us to continue providing the necklace, a small donation of £2 would help us to cover the cost of supplying. Please donate now and support DRWF to ensure that people are “staying well until a cure is found…” Thank you.
NB If you are a health care professional and would like to receive a supply of Diabetes Awareness Necklaces and Medical Check-up Cards for distribution to patients please call us on 023 9263 6136 to discuss your requirements. Alternatively click here for a bulk order leaflet form.
