My son Brody was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 5 years old. He’s now 10. One day, I received a phone call saying my son left his Humalog insulin at school. It was almost 5 p.m. and the school was closed. I immediately panicked. Brody needs his insulin, so I called our local pharmacy to try to get the dose we needed to get through the evening. I was shocked to find out that it would cost more than $300 for the emergency dose. I immediately started worrying about how I would pay for it. Would I need to pay on a credit card or get the insulin at an ER? No mother should have to worry about paying for her child’s necessary medication. There should be better options in place for families like mine. Insulin has been around for too long to be priced that high.
