Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives #Family and #Friends – Adding Real Life Issues In Our Novels #DiabetesSucks by Jacquie Biggar

Sally Cronin shares an informative, personal post from my archives. My grandson just celebrated (yes, we consider it a celebration) his fifth year with T1D. It’s not easy for him, or his mother, but they are learning to live, and thrive, with his disease. He plays competitive basketball, skateboards, and gets into trouble just like all kids, and for that, we are grateful ❤

USA Today Bestselling author Jacquie Biggar shares a post from 2015 along with an update on the diagnosis of her grandson with Type 1 diabetes at age seven, five years ago. Her research and experience with the disease enabled her to use diabetes in the plot of one of her novels, The Rebel’s Redemption. Millions of children around the world are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and I know someone who recognised the symptoms in her own son after reading a novel. Fiction can be a great way to inform and educate.

Jacquie Biggar

But one thing is certain. We will not be eating day-old food on Easter Sunday.
