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 My heart breaks for this man and his family. The word needs to get out that Canada is always an option and that no one needs to go without insulin. I am wondering Quinn about writing to the editor. I am just sad this happened and wish it didn't. This would never have happened in Canada. In Canada if a person can not afford insulin we have programs. And if they still need help and that is not enough they can go to a hospital and they will help them. There are churches and community centres that would even advocate. This is not morally right for someone 21 to die because he felt he had no other choices.
Cathy Huey So sorry prayers
Teresa Farrell RIP Jesy. Prayers
Mark Segelle It’s just bs someone has to die because of the state of our health care today😡
Doris Wright So so sad . My husband is type 2 and he does the rationing also .
GuyLeslie Young This makes me sick! Grow the you know what up and do something about health care! This is for both the right and the left!
Joanne Pickar Condolences to his family. Makes me sad and angry at the same time. Diabetics can’t help what they’ve been handed and the rest of us have to help. Pharmaceutical companies are ripping people off to the point of death. Do they not feel the sting on their dirty hands and minds?? Grrrrrr
Kathy Wischhusen This is awful. I’m so angry. 😡 how many more lives need to be lost for politicians and companies to care???
Karen Peterson We need to care for our people. If this was a Senators Son things would have been different. Shame on our congress 😢
Ceri Everett I shared your post and tagged Senator Mike Goggin (SD21- Red Wing). No sitting on the sidelines while people are dying.
Dona DeCamp McEnelly SHAME on these people!!😡😡
Milltor Marni Makes me sick! In The USA this should not happen!

Dawn Martin You are a rock star Quinn,keep speaking for the ones who are too sick to have a voice.
Beth Olin Stockley Keep shining the spotlight on this issue. You are true heroes!
Debra Donkers Souther This piece really does a good job of telling the story. I felt like I was back on that bus again.
Julianne Kolaas I am currently covered by MNcare.....they will not even touch my Trseba flex pens....would cost me $600 out of pocket....luckily my Dr. Found a different solution. It is ridiculous....back in the late 60's early 70's when my mom was buying for my dad, sister and I....she remembers it only being around $25!!
Lindsey Vojtasek If the middle men in the pharmacies are the reason the pharmaceutical companies are giving for the high cost of insulin, why don’t they allow people to purchase it directly from them and skip the pharmacy? Who do they think they are kidding?

Gina Gillmore-Wolter Thank you for your efforts! My daughter was diagnosed at age 6 with Type 1 in 2001. I appreciate what you’re doing and I too recently appeared on our local news here in Springfield, Il discussing this issue. I’d much rather be discussing finding a cure! Its unfortunate this issue has become a distraction from focusing on those efforts.
Joanne Pickar Good girl. Lots of people (Friends) are watching and listening to what you are doing Quinn. Thanks again so much.
Mike Simpkins Quinn, could you also post the PBS segment that ran a couple days ago?
Karen Konietzko Hansen Thank you for helping so many,you are “action” not all talk like so many!
Amy Wallin Price Thank you, Quinn Nystrom!!
Bill Langford It's the "Capitalistic Beast's" greed, hunger and lust for money that kills without mercy or conscience. No matter how cheap it costs to make, charge as much as 10x or more to buy.
