Overview

Even Superheroes Get Diabetes focuses on the gift within the illness.

It is the story of a boy named Kelvin who loves Superheroes. His childhood days are spent in imaginative play--saving the day.

One day, his fantasies are marred by the reality of getting diabetes...the incessant finger pricks, shots, and the constant doctor's appointments.

When a mysterious doctor uncovers that Kelvin has superpowers, the story reveals itself as the genesis of a new kind of superhero.

Kelvin is monikered 'Super K' and uses his superpowers to help other kids with diabetes.

The discovery of Super K's superpowers is akin to the discovery of one's inner strength in the face of adversity--in the face of illness.

The comic book style illustrations by Micah Chambers-Goldberg beautifully connect children and parents to the world of diabetes.

The book includes a kid friendly diagram that explains type 1 diabetes, and definitions that discuss both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
