Guess what I got!!!
I have a meeting with the office of Speaker of the House John Boehner next Monday, two hours after I have a meeting with Congresswoman Jean Schmidt (really her this time, not just her staff). I'm so excited! The director of the CF Foundation in Cincinnati is coming with me to both meetings, along with another woman I met who agreed to advocate with me. She has a friend whose daughter has CF and she Cincinnati's Finest Young Professionals award two years ago. She knows John Boehner personally and I contacted her and asked if she would be able to get a meeting set up for us. It is unclear whether or not John will actually be in the meeting yet, but if hes not at this one, Lindsay will continue to work to get a meeting set up with him. Good things are happening! We're spreading the word. This disease isn't going to cure itself :)
