Nick Jonas Leading Diabetic KIDS TO DC

Diabetes advocate Nicholas Jonas chatted with POLITICO about testifying before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation [JDRF]: ‘I was just happy to be able to share my story and hope to inspire others to do the same.’

Nick helped transform his fellow diabetics into a motivated group of grass-roots activists who sat down to talk with their representatives on Capitol Hill, according to JDRF officials. Sen. Susan Collins worked with JDRF’s Children’s Congress for her fifth time this year and noticed the impact Nick had:

‘Having special guest witnesses, such as Nick Jonas, actress Mary Tyler Moore and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard helps draw media attention to this serious illness. But, and this is especially the case with Nick Jonas, they are great role models for children who live with Type 1 diabetes. Nick was gracious enough to spend time talking to the young delegates and showing them that it is possible to lead a healthy, productive life while living with this disease.’

Nick met with Sen. Frank Lautenberg and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and now more than 170 members have been in contact with JDRF to help it gather co-sponsors for a House bill, the first step to renew the legislation at a funding level of $200 million annually.

Nick said: ‘Getting key members of Congress involved is crucial to making big things happen for diabetics around the world.. I hope to come back once again to help raise awareness. What is important is that we were able to raise awareness and hopefully in the new year we will be able to see continued progress.’

    At no time did he claim to be the leader or the organizer. He is willing to give of his time and talents though to help with this cause and many others. Hopefully he can bring more attention to type 1 diabetes and we will find a cure or even better some way to prevent it.

    Have The JoBros Called It Quits???

    Do you hear that?

    It’s the sound of tween hearts breaking around the world!

    The Jonas Brothers may be O-V-E-R!

    According to a Jonas family insider “Joe sees the writing on the wall for the group. Kevin’s heart is just not in the group anymore. His wife Danielle is his number one priority, especially after their wedding night!”

    While Kevin is getting his freak on, the youngest JoBro Nick already has his sights on being the next Justin Timberlake and Joe knows it!

    Plus Nick isn’t doing him any favors with his so called “side project”, which will no doubt turn into his main gig if the break-up is a go.

    So what about Joe?

    We’re sure Nick could give him a job as a roadie or something

    Rating: Adware, spyware, or viruses

    Ugh. I went on this website, aand it freaking gave me 2 trojans at once. It had this pop-up that said “Your computer has a virus. Do you want us to clean it?” or something of that source. I knowingly clicked Alt F4, knowing it was just a popup trying to destroy my computer. It took me right back to where I was before. i exited the internet & rebooted the computer, and a week later when I scanned it I found 2 trojans. If I had clicked “Clean the ‘virus'” I wonder how much worse the virus would’ve been. DONT use this site. If the same thing happens to you, ALT F4, and then clear the history off your computer, and then scan.

    The new site is full of sh!t. It makes my computer freeze up EVERY DAMN TIME.

    this website is virus infested.
