Team Helping Type 1 Diabetes is an illustrated children’s book to help kids and families understand the different aspects of dealing with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). The book is written from the perspective of a young boy named Jared, who tells his journey from being diagnosed to living with this autoimmune disease. Key T1D concepts are woven throughout along with a core message of being part of a “team” that represents all of people around you that will help support you. Every friend you make, every doctor who helps you are all part of your Team, helping you manage Type 1 Diabetes. Our goal is to get this book onto the beds of newly diagnosed children to help imprint core T1D concepts in an entertaining and fun way.
Diabetes and Me is a charitable organization helping fund Type 1 Diabetic focused projects, events and outreach for newly diagnosed families free of charge through donations. We also offer online support as well fund events like family fun days that allow kids and parents to feel ‘normal for a day and see that there are many others dealing with the diagnosis successfully to support each other, learn and gain new connections.
We thank you for your support.
