Local boy to address CongressWritten by Jacqueline Rabe | | email@example.com
Selected child delegates, including a Toledo boy, will testify before Congress in late June on the need for continued funding for research on type 1 diabetes. Jack Meyers, 12, has been selected to speak before Congress by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Meyers will represent Northwest Ohio with
researchers and business and community leaders.
“The day you or your child is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes is a day you will never forget,” JDRF International Chairman Mary Moore said.
Meyers said he tries to live his life as a normal 12 year-old boy. He enjoys football and playing piano.
“It would be hard to take all the stuff I have to do if I didn’t know that they would find a cure,” he said.
