DIABETES AND ME
Author: Chelsea Schmitt
Written by a very talented 8-year-old, Diabetes and Me is the story of a boy who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and his journey through treatment and management. Chase Schmitt wrote this book to help other kids who have been newly diagnosed to help them better know what it's like to live with the disease. As he writes, "We all have our ups and downs, but I would say I have a lot more ups than downs. I have big plans for my future and diabetes will not stop me!"
Diabetes and Me has chapters on diagnosis, playing sports, PODS, school life, home life, teachers, and even has some of Chase's favorite recipes and tricks for managing the disease.
