Go, Team Coco! / Lilly Diabetes & Disney
Lilly Diabetes has expanded its collection of resources for families of children with type 1 diabetes with the publication of Go, Team Coco! The story is the fourth Disney book in a series featuring Coco, a charismatic and fun-loving monkey who has type 1 diabetes. The book will be available immediately from most pediatric endocrinologists' offices in the U.S.
"Lilly Diabetes is proud to bring new resources featuring Disney content that has a positive impact on families living with type 1 diabetes," said Mike Mason, vice president U.S., Lilly Diabetes. "Since launching the first book four years ago, these stories have inspired and motivated children and families affected by the disease."
Go, Team Coco! is three stories in one book. Readers will learn about how Coco and her family cope with her diagnosis at the hospital, the new routines they establish at home, and her first follow-up visit to the doctor. Coco, along with other Disney characters, helps readers understand that with proper planning and management, children with diabetes and their families can still have fun and do things that children without the condition can do.
Each year, more than 18,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.1 For them and their families, the challenges of living with diabetes can be daunting. Through this collection of Disney stories, Lilly Diabetes sends empowering messages of inspiration, education, and practical advice to families with children who have type 1 diabetes-changing the focus from what they can't do to what they can do.
Go, Team Coco! is the latest in a series of books for young children in the Lilly Diabetes/Disney collection that also includes Coco and Goofy's Goofy Day, Coco Goes Back to School, and Coco's First Sleepover. A series of chapter books for older children is also available. All the books are available free of charge through pediatric endocrinologists' offices, and most are also accessible digitally at www.T1EverydayMagic.com, the Lilly Diabetes/Disney online destination dedicated to type 1 diabetes.
Select titles have been translated into over 30 languages and are offered in more than 50 countries. (Más)
