Way to Go Disney!

So, right now Children With Diabetes' Friends For Life Conference is taking place in Orlando, FL.  I SO wish we could be there!  I'm saving my pennies...it is on my short list of things that I really really, pretty please want to do. 

I have been following Tweets and FB posts about the FFL conference and I happened across something very exciting!

Do you love Disney?  Are you in some way connected to Type 1 Diabetes?  Then you will LOVE this!

First I saw this post on Facebook, posted by Cure Diabetes.

Attention Disney Lovers! CWD, Disney & Eli Lilly have created Coco, a character with type 1 diabetes!

How cute is that??  And then I went on to explore the DisneyFamily.com website.
DisneyFamily.com is a familiar website to me.  I frequently visit there to find entertainment ideas for our family.  When I search for birhday party ideas, they often pop up.  I've gotten great ideas from them when planning our Disney vacation.  And did you know they have an entire "tab" dedicated to Parenting?  Yep...Whether you are expecting, have a newborn, toddler, preschooler, school age child, tween, teen, or a child with Type 1 Diabetes.  (Insert brakes squealing sound!)  Did you say Type 1 Diabetes?  Yep, I sure did!


BRAVO Disney!  Thank you CWD, Disney and Eli Lilly for this most amazing resource for Parents of children with Type 1 Diabetes.  You simply must check it out.

And now, that's exactly what I'm off to do.  The article about
Heading Off To Summer Camp is very timely for our family this month!
