Young Kidney Transplant Recipient, Gabriella Nelson, (pictured right) attended Renal Physicians Association (RPA) Capitol Hill Day with AAKP Ambassadors this month with her mother.
If you were on Capitol Hill last week with AAKP for the RPA Capitol Hill Day, you would have seen the adorable
Gabriella Nelson walking around munching on snacks and occasionally saying "A-men" after a long meeting. Gabriella attended the RPA Hill Day with her mother,
Angela Clayton and her God-mother,
Leslie Jones, to advocate for pediatric patients.
Some of the concerns that were brought to the attention of elected officials included Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage and the Living Organ Donation Protection Act.
