QUINN’S FACEBOOK FEED
Some people find their calling late in life. Quinn found hers at the age of 10, when her five-year-old brother, Will, was hospitalized with type-1 diabetes. She began knocking on neighborhood doors in her small northern Minnesota town to raise money for a cure for diabetes. Three years later she was diagnosed with diabetes and re-doubled her efforts. At 16 she was named the National Youth Advocate for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and spent a year traveling across the country to camps, conferences, corporations and the Congress. Her message is simple; we must find a cure for diabetes and support the 29 million Americans living with the disease. Quinn, 29, devotes her full time efforts to diabetes advocacy and has been recognized nationally for her contributions.For the past 19 years, Quinn has shared her struggle of living with diabetes with over 250,000 people. Her message was simple: We must find a cure for diabetes and provide support and care for the millions of people living with the disease. Quinn continues to advocate for people with diabetes and shares her story with purpose and passion. She is an energetic speaker who inspires, informs and entertains her audiences.

Dawn Martin You are an amazing woman Quinn and I so look forward to meeting you when your caravan comes to my beautiful country of Canada again. Would these law makers change this law quick if it was there child? ❤️🇨🇦
Tamsen Horton Thank you for your consistent and relentless effort to start conversations around this topic! I've only been a type 1 since 1/7/19 (diagnosis day) and it's disgusting to me the issues that insulin causes for millions of people that it shouldn't 🙂
Teresa Boutiette Johnson You go Quinn
Sarah Cofer Hargrave So proud of you Quinn!! You are doing amazing work! 💪🏻

Carol Jackson Holten Quinn you are an inspiration. Love all the coverage this is getting. Quick question. We are in Canada right now. Do you need a prescription in Canada for insulin or can I get some for Katy?
Chelsea Straw Way to go Quinn! You made a really powerful statement. I hope we see lower prices soon!! 💙
Alicia Eckman Ahrendt Way to go, Quinn!

Brut This woman illustrates what life with type 1 diabetes is like...literally. https://facebook.com/brutamerica/videos/314121609317006/?v=314121609317006
Insulin should be free. Without it they die! It's synthetic and cheap to make. No reason this should cost that much🤬
watch the big pharma move to ban across border sales.
Great video! Just an FYI that you can find Quinn on Facebook at Quinn Nystrom, and visit her website at https://quinnnystrom.com 🙂
I’ll have to look into that!
I have been buying mine from Walmart for 25$ per vile and it works well, beats paying 612$ copayment for 3month supply
How many vials of insulin are you allowed to get in one trip to Canada?
insulin should be cheap
this hacks really helps!
Well now the ecomony is booming you should be able to afford it, maybe its just certain people
This family has been all over the news about their son rationing insulin because of the high cost. Many Americans are like this family. https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/30/health/rising-drug-costs/index.html

Six Minnesotans took a road trip to Canada in search of cheaper insulin. What they found was 10x cheaper on the other side of the border.
The irony is that the US spends double on health care...that is right our NHS (which some of you seem to think is communism) actually cost half per capita and is free at the point of demand. Cost of diabetic drugs in the UK to the patient £0...cost to the taxpayers for free healthcare half per person that US citizens are paying....Get a National health care scheme save yourself a boatload of money
When I lived in Australia, at first I wasn't on their national insurance and so I had to pay their full price for my medication. It cost less WITHOUT insurance than I paid in the US WITH insurance (and I had "good" coverage). How disgusting is that?
Can´t understand it. Fight abortion and try to save children and then try to kill them when they get diabetes. Strange country😰😰😰🇸🇪
Watching from Toronto..the interesting thing is that most of our medication comes from the US. It is the same medication. What is happening in the US as far as medical coverage and the price of medication is truly horrendous.
hahahahah non FDA approved. Yep we are low tech here in Canada, clearly we have inferior meds since it was a Canadian who invented the stuff. Cracks me up.

I don't mind at all if Americans come to my country to buy their insulin.
Cost of 2 breathing meds in US is $2,700 for 3 month supply. In Canada $500. Brand name. Not generic.
They should have been stopped at the border. These caravans of americans searching for better resources in other countries is disgraceful
its only a matter of time till big pharma finds a way to make it illegal to bring in cheaper meds from Canada.
And to think Banting and Best, co-discoverers of Insulin gave their patent away for $1 so it would be available for all who needed it, regardless of their financial well-being. Unfortunately, our greedy 1% manipulated a for-profit out of their sacrifice. We need to act on this.
Please please come to Canada to get your drugs. I welcome it.
We are being robbed in the USA
Follow the money. Big pharma has bought and paid for our politicians to keep the status quo here in America. So they keep getting richer and richer.
Canada needs a wall?
When committee hearings were held for compromises to get Obama Care passed, the repubs insisted that no price deals could be made with RX. Then seniors were going to Canada in bus tours to buy cheaper drugs.
I guess they don't have republican representatives in Canada? They are still cheaper in Mexico.
The lady is 100% right. The same Novonordisk product in different countries is the same.
MEDICARE FOR ALL RIGHT NOW!!!!
Canada usually follows in the FDA's footsteps - do not fall for insurance companies peddling fears. Remember that our average lifespans are several years longer than in the States and if or medications were not equal we would have higher, not lower death rates.
It works in Canada and will be ok for US -- Need to get a supply train running SOUTH!!!
The FDA works for big pharma, so naturally, they won't approve many good medicines available at a cheaper rate in Canada.
Guys , Miami is close to France ( Guadeloupe and Martinique) where you can find European medecine for cheaper , really cheaper 🙂 ( good luck with US customs )
Drugs are always cheaper when there is an absence/minimum R & D, in addition to lower regulatory standards. (That’s what I’ve been taught, always room for error) Expensive drugs does not always expose greed.
Governments don't want you to be healthy...

Kathy Kerr Westling Good for you! As a Canadian- I am surprised we’re cheaper! The U.S. is typically cheaper for everything else. All the power to you!!!!!
Carrie Cox I agree. Great work Quinn Nystrom
Mary Akin That’s shameful. My Jardiance costs $554 here for 90 days. Same drug in Canada is $84. Wake up America!!
Kristy Brown Great work. You are making an incredible difference for thousands!
