LIVING

The community

is a tight family

made up of those

who have Type

1 and those who

care for them. The

Type 1 Diabetes

Grand Challenge

aims to find better

solutions for

everyone.

New Found Hope

We interview Steve and Sally Morgan about the Steve

Morgan Foundation's recent £50m donation to fund

the challenge for a cure for Type 1 diabetes.

By Sue Marshall. In April this year the news

broke that the Steve Morgan

Foundation was to join forces

with JDRF and Diabetes UK to

invest £50m into Type 1 diabetes

research. This donation, the largest

ever philanthropic gift to Type 1

research, is going to accelerate

research into future treatments

and cures.

We caught up with Steve and

Sally Morgan of the Steve Morgan

Foundation to find out more about

their motivation for giving and their

hopes for the future.

"We want to help bring about

change for the whole Type 1

community," explains Steve. "The

community is a tight family made

up of those who have Type 1 and

those who care for them. The Type

1 Diabetes Grand Challenge aims to

find better solutions for everyone."

Steve and Sally were introduced

to the Type 1 community and the

relentless daily management of the

condition when their son Hugo was

diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at

the age of seven, while on holiday in

Antigua. "Learning how to manage

Hugo's diabetes was a steep learning

curve," says Sally. "Hugo was

diagnosed in July and went onto his

first pump in September. Mentally

it's still a burden though. There's so

much to do, to remember, to consider

and even carry about with you."
