I first heard about Robin, a fellow type 1 diabetic, on NBC Nightly News. The channel covered her trip down to Tijuana, Mexico where she found insulin that was 5%–10% of the cost in the US. This girl is fed up with the rising cost of insulin in the US and is not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.
My favorite part about Robin is how enthusiastic she is about everything.
When she hears about our trip, she asks if she can cycle with us down the California coast. We meet at the Santa Monica Pier and chat the whole way down to Huntington Beach.
