Promise Meeting

Scott Benner

Today we visited our Congressman, The Honorable Chris Smith, to thank him for his past support of legislation that benefits type I diabetes research.  

 

Our group meet with the Congressman for more then an hour, we spoke about our personal stories and shared what it’s like to live every day with type I.  Rep. Smith was a gracious host, I learned of his many endeavors in the medical research area and he is a strident supporter of people like Arden and their needs.

 

He spoke with feeling about the need for more financial support for research and shared some of the ways that he hoped to attract scientists to that research.

 

It was a wonderful meeting and we thank the Congressman for his time and insight.  

 

You can learn more about the JDRF’s Promise To Remember Me initiative at this link, I can’t say enough about the work that the JDRF does in Washington on behalf of the children with type I - they are doing amazing work!

That is awesome! So glad you seized the opportunity to meet with him.  I hope your story (Arden's story) made a difference in how he will think of the need for diabetes research.  Even if only a little, it counts.
