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.

David Winkelman you are an inspiration...
Julia Blanchette Not from Minnesota but want to comment my thoughts. I think the bigger issue is that people who aren’t 400% below the poverty line need insulin assistance too. There still seems to be a gap in providing assistance to those who make more money but still can’t afford insulin due to being underinsured or uninsured. I hope they involve the diabetes community to better understand the problems.
Ron P Wacks This bill addresses a crucial health situation that can be a life or death situation. It must be about health—not profit.
Sharon Hidveghy What are the costs in Mexico for those near the Southern border?
Terrance Lovejoy Are we close enough to election time for their attention toward an emergency yet though? Offensive as that may sound to some, not sure how to word that better.
Deidre Waxman I’m On Medicare and I still wouldn’t be able to afford my insulin under these provisions
Patricia Ann Tweed If the price was based close to its cost, it would be affordable.

Mary McMillan I am curious how my fellow type ones can navigate everyday life these days. I was diagnosed fifty seven years ago. In 1963 life was easier. I don't think Big Pharma was a description of anything. The word integrity was alive and strong, I at nine years old thought so. I used to get 'goosies' reciting the National Anthem. My Mother's great great Grandfather died on a prison ship during the revolutionary war. That should be something to be proud of, not so sure anymore. I do not have MNSure. I being
Marianne Goren I also have Medicare with BCBS for supplement and I pay a lot more than $25. And I live on a fixed income. No one is including seniors in the insulin discussion. Why is this? Our government is beholden to big pharma. And the best our president can say is we can buy from Canada. He said this a couple of months ago. Not heard anything since then. Just a sound bite and to any sane person a stupid idea. Like Canada has enough insulin for their country and ours. Why not do something reasonable and have our president negotiate with the drug companies directly.
Mary McMillan Sorry, needed time out. I have Medicare. I have supplemental insurance through UCARE. I heard the notification that UCARE was not going to charge more than $25 for insulin! When I ore
Jennifer Smith Yes, I do and I absolutely hate the co pay 😭 (Not for insulin tho)

Brittany Schuver We had to take my T1 husband to the walk in clinic today because his doctor never responded to the refill request and he couldn't wait another day...it was that or a trip to the ER 🙁
Diane Palmer Was talking about ins with a friend and told her I'd gone 5 years without medical coverage. She exclaimed, "How'd you do that?". Told her it was BEFORE HAVING DIABETES or I'd have been dead.
Karen Carson So sad 😞
Becky Henry Thank you for fighting for #insulinforall Quinn.
Sandra Weinrib Stanfield All diabetics without insurance can apply for pharmaceutical company patient assistant programs. There are also savings cards to help with copays. That being said, there is no excuse for US insulin price gouging.
Heather Milligan This should not be happening!
Dana Jennifer this is an absolute disgrace
Samantha McKnight The comments on that page are so disgusting. People are rude.
