The Michael Green Diabetes Foundation was founded by Joanne Green after her husband, Michael died suddenly in December 2012. Michael was only 53, but he was overweight and unfit – he had Type 2 diabetes and then developed complications. The doctors at Watford General Hospital concluded that he had suffered a ‘silent heart attack’ – a complication of Type 2 diabetes which is relatively unknown.
Joanne, along with her daughter Natalia (16 years old at the time) decided that they did not want anyone else to go through the trauma of losing a loved one through ignorance. So began their campaign to change lives.
We’re raising awareness of the condition and also raising funds for the diabetes unit at Watford General Hospital. Visit our ‘Diary’ page to see what’s coming up and our ‘News’ pages to see our past events.
