Hello On Line Community!
Just a quick note. I wanted to let you know that Senator Brown has followed through on a HUGE request I asked of him. I told him in our meeting I knew it was a lot to ask but I hoped he would consider stepping up and becoming a leader when it comes to National Institute of Health Funding; and by that I mean not just diabetes funding (although I care deeply about that) but funding to help find cures for all kinds of diseases.
Today Senator Brown did just that, becoming one of the first Senators to sign onto a Senate letter calling for strong funding of NIH programs.
I want to say a public Thank You to Senator Brown. Today is it clear to me that he and his staff truly listened to my daughter, husband and me when we met with him. Feel free to add you thanks to him on this blog — his staff is reading!
Score one for a future with CURES in it.
