Dr. Maureen Michele, an MD and parent to a T1D kiddo who also had pediatric neuroblastoma, joins us to shed light on why it’s so important for parents to understand and embrace resilience.
As scary as it is to see your child diagnosed with T1D, it’s also scary to navigate it while dealing with fear, overwhelm, and grief from it.
Dr. Maureen shares practical tips for parents of kids with chronic illness to calm the overwhelming thoughts and be an advocate both for their kids and themselves.
