My Daughter Was On The News!

Recommended Posts

My daughter, her cousin and 2 of their friends were interviewed by a local TV station this morning and then featured several times during the day. They are in a national competition that integrates science and community issues and they are finalists. Their idea is to put lights on the (Mt. Rainier) volcano evacuation signs in the valley near us. If they win, they get $25,000 to put their idea to work. They fly to Disney World next month for the competition (and I found a way to go too!).

I just had to brag about them! All four of them were also starters on our basketball team (I was the coach) that tied for first place this season. They have worked so hard at everything they've done this school year and it's so nice to see them rewarded. It's nice to see 13 and 14 year olds in the news for doing something positive, rather than for shooting someone or stealing a car.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Oh Liz--that's wonderful!! :D They sound like very well-rounded young women. You have every reason to be proud--and you're right, we don't hear enough about all of the good kids out there.

Congrats to all the girls and their parents!
