Juvenile Diabetes --- A New children's book explains what it is, what to know and how to cope... All parents know, sometimes our little ones tackle some pretty big things. This is certainly true for the many children who have Type-1 diabetes. Explaining to a child why they must have daily needles is a heavy task for any loving parent. Mother and author Irene Mallano provides a helpful starting point to talking and learning about Type-1 diabetes in their children's book, "Mommy, What is Type-1 Diabetes?" : A True Story about My Diagnosis and What to Expect was co-authored and co-illustrated by Mallano's young daughter, Madison Rose, who has Type-1 juvenile diabetes.

Mommy, What is Type-1 Diabetes? is a useful reference for anyone wanting to learn more about juvenile diabetes, particularly for families who are personally dealing with the condition. The book takes readers through many of the struggles a young person with Type-1 diabetes goes through in a postive storyline. Additionally, the book provides valuable "mommy tips," glossary terms and basic information throughout the book, providing any overwhelmed parent with a solid foundation.

In the end, helping overwhelmed parents is this mother's greatest task. She understands that learning about the condition is the first step to recovering from the shock of diagnosis. "This is not about us," says Mrs.Mallano. "This is about raising awareness for Type-1 diabetes and helping families by letting people know that it won't be perfect, but it will be okay. Diabetes does not define you."

The mother/daughter duo will be donating 25% of the net proceeds from the book-sale of Mommy, What is Type-1 Diabetes? to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to support their search for a cure and the advancements they make. Thank you for your support!
