-He may be too young to become President, but that isn’t stopping Nick Jonas from heading to Capitol Hill. According to the Washington Examiner, Nick is coming to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to talk about juvenile diabetes, an affliction he was diagnosed with at age 13.

Jonas, who is now 16, 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, which will be held in the Dirksen Building.

Thanks Stephanie for the tip!

    I don’t think “sweet thing to do” is the correct response. This is a necessity for him. It’s is a part of his, and many others lives. I think that we should all be proud of a 16 year old celebrity who, despite his popularity and crazy schedule, is taking time to help himself and thousands of others, who suffer from type 1 diabetes to try to make a change in the world. Congratulations NIck. I am proud of you! Best of luck.

    ummmmmmmmmmmm do any of you know that it costs money to have him do thisand that he does not pay his own way and all? My cousin told me that nick jonus actaully makes the people pay for him to get like a big plane for himself and that money comes from the money that people donate for a cure. Cuz like the jobros don’t make enough money already
