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.

Suzanne Hansen We just recently tried Kai's belly & were so excited about it. But, we ended up having awful readings the two weeks she had it there. Like worst ever. We love the back of her arm. We did above her bottom for months & then she started sleeping on her back so we were getting false lows at night constantly. I hate that it causes you pain but hearing an adult say that it's painful really puts it into perspective for me with Kai. We started using numbing cream a few months ago & have felt so guilty for not always doing that from the start. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us. <3
Rena Bazis Why follow through if it was so painful? My abdomen is my favorite spot. I feel no pain at all upon insertion and I like it hidden.
Paul Thorsgaard Hmmm, a new site. Always use my belly. Sensor in the belly, insulin in the lower back. Medtronic parts. Never thought about a different spot. Been Type 1 for 45 years, and I STILL GET PAIN during insertion sometimes. Last week, I even felt the insulin going in several times... Pain doesn't really go away over the years, you just get used to it.
Kathie Smith Ouch. Even LOOKS painful.
Sarah J Hankel You’ve got guts girl!
