2017 JDRF Government Day, Washington, DC

My mom has always wanted to go to JDRF Government Day. Thanks to JDRF UT/ID she got an invitation to attend this year! 150 advocates met with every member of Congress during the 3 day event to thank the members for their support of the SDP which gives $150 million each year! We need this money to continue researching for a cure!
 All the JDRF advocates, March 2017
 Idaho U.S. Senator Mike Crapo's post
 Utah and Idaho advocates
 Ready to storm the Hill
 Amy Colgan and Fondra Magee, ID advocates
 Idaho U.S. Representative Mike Simpson
 Dinner with advocates
 Idaho U.S. Representative Raul Labrador's staffer
 Idaho U.S. Senator Jim Risch. I sent some gifts I made with my mom for each of the Congressmen and I madea short video for each Congressman. When Senator Risch watched my video to him, he asked my mom if he could record one for me and sent it to my phone right then! That was awesome!
