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.

  3. Anytime you live with a disease, it can be heartwrenching. I agree, it takes time to get to that acceptance and move forward, but if does need to be done. i agree, those dealing with something everyday are such strong people. Kudos to your daughter and grandson, as well as you and all family members.

  4. It’s so hard for parents and grandparents to help the little ones to go through this. I imagine your grandson brings his own lunch to school and his own snacks to parties. He knows that he is different than his friends. It’s a challenge socially, but it’s real challenge is the day to day medication and nutrient.

    • Everything has to be carb counted and his insulin adjusted continually. It is a challenge, but I’m so proud of how he and my daughter are a team against this monster!

      • I’m sure you’re proud of them, Jacquie! That takes the worry off a little bit. I hope the medical technology will come up with a cure one day to deal with the insulin!
