My name is Chris Cracolice I am 53 years old and have had diabetes for 48 of those years. I remember growing up with diabetes and how it not only affected me physically but mentally as well. One of the most vivid memories I have was as any child growing up in the 60’s was watching Batman, Superman and Tarzan on TV.

Of course the next day I would go outside and have my own adventures as being that Super Hero. One day I was being Tarzan and it hit me if I was out in the middle of a jungle without insulin I would die. This affected my self-esteem in many ways and still does to this day. I was not like other kids who could do things that I was not able to.

For years I wanted to help other children with diabetes not have to go through this. A couple of years ago I came up with an
idea of a child Super Hero with diabetes called Diabetic Dude. I have written and illustrated a book about Diabetic Dude with his sidekick FRED who is a glucose monitor Fast Reliable Educating Data, and his foes the Glucose Gang.

Now a dream come true and able to help others my book is for sale at Amazon.com.
