Will Congress carry on Gabriella's fight?

Washington (CNN) - Everywhere 10-year-old Gabriella Miller went, from Philadelphia to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, she brought along a frying pan, and used it to smash a walnut.

It was a tradition that started about a year ago, when Gabriella's father broke the news to his young daughter that she had a terminal brain tumor.

"They told us it was about the size of a walnut in her head," recalls Mark Miller.

    This just completely breaks my heart. My chosen profession took me to various locations for a day, a week, a month, to work, and then move one to the next location. It would always break my heart to go to children's hospitals. I would lose it, and cry on the way home every time I went to one. Sorry.

    What makes this sad from the article is that is seems to be a stunt to reallocate a tiny fraction of the money Republicans cut from NIH and cancer research previously.
