One of the NHL's most talented young stars shares his inspiring coming-of-age story about following his dreams after being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research.';Max, you have type 1 diabetes,' the doctor said. My mom and I looked at each other. For her, time stood still for a second as our entire future as a family shifted. But I had no clue what the diagnosis meant. So I said the first thing that came to mind. ';Can I still play hockey?' As a kid, when Max Domi was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, he only ever had one answer: a hockey player. Growing up the son of a professional hockey playerTie DomiMax saw from an early age what it took to make the NHL: grit, talent, and the support of a team. Over countless hours in the garage, at the rink, and in the gym, Max chased his dream. It seemed that Max was born to be on the ice. But then, when he was twelve years old, Max started getting sick. And sicker. Eventually, he and his family learned the truth: Max had type 1 diabetes. Overnight, Max and his family found their lives upended. All Max wanted was to be a normal kid, but suddenly, the simplest thingsa game of basketball with friends, a family meal, a school field tripwere complicated with a thousand different considerations. Would people notice or make fun of him if he carried his blood-testing kit everywhere? Would his teammates think he was weak if his blood sugar went low at hockey practice? How much insulin did he need after a meal? And all the while, the fear of what might happen if things went wrong hung over his head. Max had to grow up quickly. As he struggled to find his new normal, Max slowly began to realize that overcoming his disease demanded the same qualities that it took to be a hockey playermental and physical toughness, maturity, and the love and care of family and friends. Bit by bit, he learnedsometimes the hard waynot just to control his diabetes, but to turn it into an advantage. If managing his disease was going to demand that Max be stronger, more prepared, and more disciplined than anyone else, then he wouldn't just be good at those things: he'd be the best. He'd do whatever it took to move him closer to his dream of playing in the NHL. Inspiring, heartwarming, and exciting, No Days Off is a memoir about what it's like to be a kid whose world is turned upside down, and what it takes to face adversity.
