One family shares an emotional journey when their only child is diagnosed with "Type I Juvenile Diabetes" at age eleven. They are determined to find a way of life that does not involve multiple daily shots of insulin. This book explains the normal medical advice, but then provides alternatives and hope for those still impacted by diabetes. This is not a cure, rather a life changing look at viable options to avoid or reduce insulin injections. Is their story fact, fiction, coincidence or a miracle? This is a truly heartfelt and informative look at diabetes. It is a "must-have" for any family who has a loved one with diabetes.
Not everyone has someone they can fall back on, this book helps people know that they are not alone. This is a great book for showing what someone might go through and that they are not totally alone.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a book on Type I Diabetes and those that want to read something truly amazing.
