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.

Shari Jackson Wiltrout You should post this in the type 1 Minnesota group. I bet there are quite a few with stories.
Andrea Aspelund Yep..it happened to me several times last year because I turned 26 and my insurance changed
Sammi Massie Not diabites but I have had to show less expensive options were not viable for me with every migraine drug that I tried before getting to what I have now. I was allergic to the one covered relief drug, and had to indicate that with every authorization form.
Michelle Pelkey I’m in agreement with Emily. Almost everyone has this stipulation now.
Emily Stunek 🤚🏻 and almost every patient I see unfortunately

Diabetes is a high maintenance and high stakes disease requiring constant monitoring and precise decision-making. What if we could outsource that workload to a machine? That’s what one couple decided to do. They made a homemade pancreas that eases the burden of diabetes care… and then released the design to the public for free.

Katrina Rebecca Look online on the novolog website for a discount card. You would then activate your card. It takes up to 100$ off each script. I just used one for myself.
Sherri Thorman Taggart This is ridiculous! Health care in America is so broken!!
Julie Vagle Thank you for sharing! I had a recent job change and 1 vile of Humalog used to cost $64 and now it’s $275! Thank you so much for advocating for better insulin prices! Let me know if i can do anything about this issue or good organizations to connect with! Amen to #insulin4all
