6-year-old surfer Quincy is our new hero 

Until Quincy Symonds was 2 and a half, her parents say they spent more time with her in Melbourne hospitals than at their home.
Symonds has a rare adrenal insufficiency condition, which meant her body didn’t produce enough cortisone on its own. The little girl is completely steroid-dependent, wears a medical note on a grey bracelet and needs medication three times a day. Just last week, she had to be admitted to the hospital again.
