How 12 EpiPen's Saved Ali Jaffe's Life

One of the most reported topics in the news recently has been the skyrocketing price of EpiPen®. The escalating price means that at best, legions of families will feel an enormous financial strain and worst case, food allergic families will go without this life-saving device. Consumers have responded in droves.

At Spokin, we know EpiPen® saves lives, and we are deeply grateful for the protection they provide. But we firmly believe auto-injectors should be accessible to everyone. The sheer volume of media coverage on EpiPen® means that awareness of food allergies has never been higher. We believe the increased awareness is ultimately a tremendous positive for anyone living with food allergies. 

We are thrilled to share Ali Jaffe's story "How 12 EpiPens Saved My Life" recently featured in the New York Times. Her productive and positive attitude embodies the spirit of Spokin.


Ali Jaffe, 24, has used an EpiPen® 12 times to cope with life-threatening allergic reactions. Ali lives in New York City and works at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

"I have never felt that having these allergies inhibits me. If anything good has come out of the recent pricing controversy, it’s that this portable lifesaving injection called the EpiPen® has become a household name. Now people who don’t have food allergies know how indispensable it is for those who need it."
