Today I received a phone call from the JDRF’s “Promise to Remember Me” campaign. I recently responded to an email that was seeking a volunteer to coordinate and take the lead in one of their meetings.
Their program helps people effected by Type I Diabetes meet with their representatives in government. It affords then the opportunity to thank their representatives for their support, explain how Type I effects us and to encourage their continued support of children's healthcare legislation.
I’ll be starting the process first thing Monday morning when I contact Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ). I’ll be blogging here about the process as the meeting approaches. I believe that I’ve done a good job of explaining Type I Diabetes to all of you. So now I’ll be taking the lessons I’ve learned here and trying to explain the rigors of Type I to my Congressman. Wish us luck and please check back often for updates!
