Twin boys from the Richmond area are taking on your lawmakers to make sure kids who are in the hospital get the support they need from Washington.
Gabriel and Noah Cypress look like your average 9-year-olds. But when they were born, mom LaToya Cypress says the doctors told them something shocking – the twins had sickle cell disease.
This year, Gabriel and Noah were invited to go to Washington, D.C. to talk to representatives about child healthcare during the Children Hospital Association’s Family Advocacy Day.
The boys also spoke with Sen. Mark Warner (VA-D), Representatives David Brat (District 7-R) and Donald McEachin (District 4-D), telling them what it’s like to be in the hospital so often. They also thanked the lawmakers for reauthorizing CHIP funding this year.
