Hooray for the Goofy Giveaway

As some of you know, we entered the giveaway at My Life as a Pancreas for the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Book Coco and Goofy's Goofy Day and we won!

It arrived in the mail today and Julia was very excited to receive it.  It is a great book which we have already read three times.  In the story the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse friends find out that their friend Coco the Monkey has Type 1 Diabetes.  She is invited to Goofy's birthday party.  Goofy worries about whether or not she should go to the party since she has diabetes.  He learns that she can do anything he can do and eat treats too.  In the end Goofy ends up needing to be taken care of because he ate too much junk and Coco is fine and had a great day.  Julia thought the ending was very funny and enjoyed the book very much.

This book is part of a partnership between Disney and Eli Lilly.  Disney has even added a new section on their family website all about Life with Type 1.  If you have not had a chance to check it out you can HERE. 

Thank you to Stephanie for having this giveaway and thank you to Disney and Eli Lilly for making my girl smile.
