JDRF Children's Congress 09

We have great news to share! Liliana was selected to represent Oregon in Washington DC this June as part of a 150 member Children's Congress!
She wrote an essay addressing several required topics and was selected out of 1500 applicants. She will attend meetings with our Senators during a "hill blitz" and experience advocating for a cure for type 1 diabetes in our nations capitol. We are all amazed and excited!
Check the JDRF webite for news and updates about our adventure. I will also post news here.
Thanks for all your support!
