SCA Takes Over the Hill

Good morning! Members of the South Central Affiliate are headed to the Hill. Those of us who are members of the Texas Delegation are starting our day with visits to our Senators. You'd be amazed to see the number of You're the Cure Members who are wearing red and carrying their lobby day totes.

On a personal note, this is my 5th visit to DC for the AHA's lobby day and it is always a humbling event. As a staff member, it is easy to get caught up in operations or day-to-day tasks and forget why we do what we do. I am always inspired by volunteer advocates who make it a priority to spend time with us. And, I am always ready to tackle on more when we leave.

Stay tuned for more from those of us in the SCA! Thank you so much for being part of what we do and don’t forget to take pictures of your sneakers if you’re not in DC.

You’re the Cure,
Terri R. Broussard
Vice President, South Central Affiliate
