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!

Congratulations! I was Oregon's delegate in 2001 and I had an amazing time. If you have any questions about it or want some tips on what to do in D.C. (if you're staying there extra which I definitely recommend as it's amazing!) please let me know.

Cheers,
Allison
