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.

Woman says her son couldn't afford his insulin – now he's dead
Nicole Smith-Holt's son started trying to ration his insulin to make it last longer. It wasn't enough.
Sourab Sujit Aisha Sawar this is just sad 😕
Pamela Busho-Wachholz My heart breaks when I hear stories like these. Thank you, Quinn, for your diligent work.
Dona DeCamp McEnelly This is ridiculous!😡
Peggy Denzer This is sooooo wrong! My gosh! What is wrong with ppl?
Corey Kretsinger Came across this story today. 🙁 https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/02/amid-the-shutdown-federal-workers-worry-about-paying-for-rent-food.html?
Jill Thompson Horrible
Carolyn Blankenship I understand this, I have insurance but at times I had to take money out of my savings (such as it is) to buy it.
Kristy Brown Our government and medical system is so greedy. I sure hope this can be resolved quickly so no one else has to suffer
Twig Tolle Jr. While this story is touching, it is 100% avoidable. R and NPH, while not the ‘best’ options, are very affordable and are still prescribed and used every single day. Ridiculous that he didn’t have the education to choose an option, or that his physician put him on an advanced basal/bolus in the first place.
Norma Salmon Arellano This should not happen!
Mike Geraci I believe that you can go to any county or state run hospital and get treatment. It works for illegals.
