>Sheila Elliott, Colby Elliott’s mom, updates us on the June 16 congressional visits day so far.
We’re on the Hill! It’s so exciting. So far we’ve met with Rep. Mike Conaway, Rep. Mike Burgess (who’s also a doctor), and Rep. Sam Johnson of Texas. It’s a challenge to keep three boys all focused and calm at the same time, of course.
We think Colby is putting a “face” on the importance of health care for these lawmakers, and that’s great. Behind all of these bills and decisions are kids like Colby, who are alive because of well-trained pediatric specialists.
Now we’re off to our next appointments!
