IOWA: Quinn Stumpf’s first two years of life have been painful for her and heartbreaking for her family.
She’s endured 150-plus doctor visits and eight hospitalizations. Her nights are sleepless, often getting just a couple hours of rest. And she suffers from seizures off and on throughout the day.
“She’s in pain, it seems like, all the time,” April Stumpf said of her daughter, who has a severe neurological disease and is on a long list of daily medications.
Starting today, however, the rural Riverside family will have a new option they hope will ease Quinn’s seizures and pain — a treatment they and other parents have been lobbying for for months at the Statehouse to make legal in Iowa.
