An extra day in DC

Our final day in D.C. was quite busy. We had a private meeting with Senator Shaheen, per her request. As I expected, the meeting went really well. Senator Shaheen is a big supporter of legislation that makes healthcare more accessible. She is also a huge supporter of Boston Children’s and knows they must continue to train amazing specialists. During our meeting, Senator Shaheen was extremely supportive and showed genuine interest in our personal story.

After a lengthy visit with the Senator, we received an escorted tour of the Capitol Building with Molly, an intern at Senator Shaheen’s office.  Unfortunately, due to the fact that we had a flight to catch, we had to shorten our tour of the Capitol.

Overall, our trip to D.C. was very successful. We all felt good about the meetings we had. It was so wonderful to be able to connect with our Senators and Congressman to tell them in person how important Boston Children’s Hospital is to Nicholas and our family. They were all interested in our personal story and seemed to really pay attention to what we said. We were so honored to be chosen by Boston Children’s and would like to thank them again for the opportunity to tell our story and represent them on Capitol Hill.
