Nick Jonas to testify on Capitol Hill!

Juvenile diabetes sufferer Nicholas Jonas is marching to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to talk about diabetes, which he was diagnosed with at 13.

According to Washington Examiner, Nick will testify before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee on June 24 to ask for more federal funding for diabetes research 'and to remind Congress about the urgent need for a cure for a disease he lives with every day,' a senate aide said. Fellow diabetes sufferers Mary Tyler Moore and Sugar Ray Leonard are also set to testify at the hearing, held in the Dirksen Building.
