Every couple years, the whole Camera 1 crew, has the opportunity to photograph and document JDRF’s Children’s Congress event.

Over 150 children, and many adults, affected both directly and indirectly by type 1 diabetes travel to Washington DC in order to bring awareness to the disease and the hardships faced by those who live with it…

 

 

Children representatives meet with their state representatives and senators along with other federal officials before holding a hearing before members of congress.

The children and their families also have the opportunity to meet other families and celebrity professionals who live with the disease. The networking opportunity provides great resources and acts as a great source of support for those dealing with the illness every day, hour and minute of their lives.
