Lilly and Disney: A Unique Collaboration

The Lilly Diabetes and Disney collaboration grew out of a desire to help and empower people with type 1 diabetes. Together, these two companies combine the best of two worlds: expertise in type 1 diabetes and Disney magic.

Because families with a child with type 1 diabetes face unique challenges, Lilly Diabetes and Disney Publishing Worldwide created a series of books for children of different ages and at varying stages of type 1 diabetes. These books explore real-life issues for families impacted by type 1 diabetes.

Plus, Lilly and Disney bring you the popular website, Spoonful.com/type1, which offers parents of children with diabetes exciting seasonal content that's updated throughout the month. This useful site helps families impacted by type 1 diabetes establish new routines and gives advice on how to let kids be kids.

These books and magazines are distributed exclusively in the US through doctors' offices. Ask your diabetes healthcare team about getting your child a copy.
