Beth Baldwin

Since losing her son Peter, 13, to undiagnosed type 1 diabetes in 2015, Beth has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of the early symptoms. She launched our Know Type 1 campaign in June 2017. It has been seen by over 1 million people. She petitioned the Welsh Assembly, who made 10 wide-ranging recommendations which will all increase early identification. These will save lives. She is contacted by families worldwide whose child was diagnosed safely thanks to her. She has raised more than £70,000. Her commitment to early diagnosis has become Peter's legacy.
