Moira McCarthy is an acclaimed writer, author, and public speaker who has shared her story—and lessons—on raising a child with type 1 diabetes in the media, through books and on her popular blog, www.despitediabetes.com. With over 15 years of experience raising a child with diabetes, McCarthy offers a frank, empowering perspective from a mother who has successfully weathered the teenage years and made it to the other side with a healthy, outstanding young adult.
McCarthy has appeared on CNN Live, Good Morning America, Fox News, and in The New York Times. She was recently recognized as the JDRF International Volunteer of
the Year. Her six books include the top-selling Everything Parents Guide to Juvenile Diabetes.

 

About Moira's newest book, Raising Teens with Diabetes

Hormones. Growth spurts. Mood swings. All combined with blood sugars.

The teen years with diabetes on board are a challenging time for parents and anyone who cares about a child with diabetes. Raising Teens with Diabetes: A Survival Guide for Parents, by well-known diabetes mom, author, and advocate Moira McCarthy, is a no-nonsense, honest approach at not just surviving but thriving in those years, from a mom who has been there.  Raising Teens with Diabetes is a must-have resource for anyone navigating the waters of parenting a child with diabetes.
