I have T1D kids say to me,"I want to do all the stuff that you do."  So, I thought, "Why not start a club for kids so that they can advocate like I do."  We meet at the same time the parents meet for the JDRF Outreach meeting at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital the second Tuesday of the month.  I am going to start one here in Coeur d Alene, also!  So far, we have made several thank you posters for Senators and the Representatives thanking them for signing onto the Special Diabetes Program which give $150 million annually to T1D research.  Also, we make posters thanking the Congressmen for meeting with us when we discuss bills.  I called several of my friends with T1D and asked them to meet with me when I met with U.S. Senator Risch about S. 2689 The Medicare CGM Access Act. We and 30 people come (T1D kids and their families).  Now that is some serious advocacy!!!!
