Overview

"Rosie Becomes a Warrior" is a children's story designed to empower children with type 1 diabetes to live their happiest lives. "Rosie Becomes a Warrior" follows the story of Rosie, a second-grader who loves to draw and eat ice cream, as she navigates her type 1 diabetes diagnosis with her parents. Rosie doesn't understand why her parents are worried about her until she goes to the doctor with her mom one night where the doctor performs a blood glucose test on her, and her blood sugar reading is 500. "If 100 is good on a test, 500 has to be really good, right?!" Rosie thinks. But then her mommy starts to cry. Rosie's never seen her mommy cry before. Now she knows something is wrong. From the doctor's office, readers join Rosie on her journey to the hospital as she navigates the fears, highs and lows, and unknowns of type 1 diabetes with a courageous, proactive, and positive spirit that I hope readers are empowered and strengthened by. Meet Rosie, Penny the Zebra, Dr. H, Emily, and DeeDee's Ice Cream Shop in "Rosie Becomes a Warrior." Be inspired to find your inner warrior with Rosie. Remind yourself and your family that you are capable of everything you set your mind to. Rediscover a positive perspective on the type 1 diabetes experience.
