Why do our volunteers love being part of our family?

Sally started volunteering for THRF Group because she wanted to give back to support those who helped her through her own health battle. Sally lived with Type 1 Diabetes for 33 years and was on dialysis for two years. After four years waiting on the transplant list, Sally finally received a kidney and pancreas transplant to treat her diabetes!

“I was in hospital a lot and they helped me a lot, so I just wanted to give back.”

Sally, THANK YOU for helping us in the fight to save lives and improve care for people living with illness and disease, including diabetes.
