My name is Jacquie and I am a full-time graphic designer and marketing manager currently living in Waterloo, Iowa. In 2011, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. The stress of the cost of my treatment has impacted my life in ways that I could never imagine. I am on multiple medications to treat my disease, including Stelara, which begins with an IV infusion that can cost up to $11,000 without insurance. From there, I have to self-administer a shot every four weeks. These shots are $22,800 per dose before insurance.
