While she is playing soccer, she begins to feel dizzy, but she remains positive by thinking “this day is going to be bright as the sun!” However, the dizziness worsens, and Estelle has to be whisked away to the Emergency Room. She is diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, and although she doesn’t understand at first, she comes to comprehend her condition and how to take care of herself. She’s firm and positive that she’ll live as brightly as before—bright as the sun!

Informazioni sull'autore

Brian Wu, a 7th year MD/PhD, is on track to finishing his PhD in 2014 and has a goal to becoming a Sports Medicine Physician with a focus on holistic care and treatment.The idea for writing the Storybook Illustrated Guides first occurred to Brian as a fifth grader, when he wrote a story "Wacky Olympics and Body Wars", which is a personification of the immune system and how our bodies fight disease. Since then, the idea has matured over the years and the result is nothing short of astonishing. Brian has created a revolutionary series of books that raises the bar where children’s health education is concerned. There’s nothing else like the SIGuides on the market today.Brian believes children should understand medical conditions they acquire, so that they can take good care of themselves and lead full lives. He has a way of writing about complex medical topics at a level that children comprehend. Brian understands the value of empowering children with diseases, enabling them to play an active role in their own treatment and recovery process.Brian values the ability for all ages to learn from the power of stories. He has the passion to share his love of science and medicine through these stories with the world. The power of storytelling stems from the fact that stories can teach without overbearing. Learning comes naturally when engaging both logical and creative sides of the brain. The facts surrounding each disease appeal to the logical side, making the story engaging and the learning fun. Brian knows that if he can help even a single person then the project will be well worth it.Brian’s interests include writing and entrepreneurship. He is married and loves his wife dearly.Contact Brian Wu at brian@siguides.comMore information on Brian can be found at
