At this year’s Children With Diabetes conference, Disney introduced a special new character named Coco. Coco is a young monkey with type 1 diabetes who sports a trendy diabetes bracelet and is friends with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and the rest of the gang. Coco is the star of an upcoming book called Coco and Goofy’s Goofy Day. Coco shows Goofy that she can go to the party, play games, win contests, and eat cake and ice cream. This is an important message that we’ve seen delivered in other stories. Lilly Diabetes and Disney take the story a progressive step further. Coco and other guests partake in but don’t overdo it when it comes to treats.
