Today President Obama signed the Gabriella Miller Kids First Act allocating $126 million to pediatric disease research. Ten year-old Miller died in October from an inoperable type of brain cancer, but not before serving as a fierce advocate for funding.
She began the Smashing Walnuts Foundation bringing attention to the issue of pediatric brain cancer. Next, Gabriella wrote a letter to Obama asking that more money be dedicated to help children suffering from illness. Obama signed the letter today as well, for her parents.
