Posted: Updated:

Today, an eastern Iowa family is in our nation's capital to talk to lawmakers.

One Cedar Falls family traveled to the capitol along with many other kids from across the nation.

They're there for the 13th annual Speak Now For Kids Advocacy Day.

The twins will be talking about what it's like to live with Cystic Fibrosis.  

Berne and Maren Denison tell KWWL each day they have at least 90 minutes of physical therapy.

Each week, they have to take more than 300 pills, counting doses. 

The twins will be speaking to lawmakers during the Speak Now For Kids day about how the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has helped them.

The kids hope  by sharing their story in D.C., lawmakers can see how important hospitals and health care is for children like them. 

The goal of the event is to improve health care for kids with rare diseases

These Cedar Falls twins will hear unique stories from many other kids.
