Quinn, Age 10

Having been diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes at only 18 months old, Quinn has been living with Diabetes for practically his entire life. Until recently, all of his care had to be provided in the Bay Area, with visits taking Quinn out of school for an entire day, and his family spending hours in the car to and from his appointments. 

Thanks to donations made to our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Program, Quinn and his family now have Pediatric Diabetes care much closer to home. The new Salinas Valley Health Clinics Pediatric Diabetes Clinic offers specialty care with highly skilled UCSF Pediatric Endocrinologists, right here in Monterey County.

Quinn is a great advocate for Diabetes education and shares his story to help others learn about healthy blood sugar levels, dietary choices, and portion control.

100% of your donations stays local and helps fund pediatric equipment and services for local kids like Quinn, including the Salinas Valley Health Clinics Pediatric Diabetes Clinic in Salinas.
