The preparation of a will can be something people put off until the need arises but by having a valid will you ensure your future wishes will be met. A will should be regularly updated, reviewed and stored safely with someone you trust. After taking care of loved ones, you could consider whether a bequest to Diabetes SA is a gift you could kindly include.
