Barack Obama’s two daughters have already met Nick Jonas at the Kids’ Inaugural Ball, the President himself, finally met the youngest Jonas brother yesterday. However, that wasn’t the only reason Nick was in Washington.
Nick Jonas was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 13, and is now fighting for diabetes research funding while working for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. He will testify today in front of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee along with Sugar Ray Leonard and Mary Tyler Moore.
The Jonas Bothers created the Change for the Children Foundation, which donates money to charities benefiting children who are disadvantaged or ill. They released their fourth CD, “Lines, Vines, and Trying Times,” last week.
