2. More on the story here, Cha.

"Caileigh McDowell wanted only one thing for her 18th birthday: to register for the upcoming presidential election so she could vote for Hillary Clinton."

"A full-blown political junkie, feminist and equal rights proponent by age 8, Caileigh once shook the hand of President Bill Clinton during a Pittsburgh rally, attended a 2008 Hillary Clinton town hall meeting and penned a letter to President Obama."

“Most kids do not care about politics,” she wrote Obama at age 11 while a student at Edgewood Elementary School. “I do. I've realized that I can be anything that I want to be. You have helped me realize that.”

"Caileigh's birthday would have been April 11. She died Saturday of Crohn's disease, discovered, her family said, after an intestinal blockage led to her hospitalization in February at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC."

It's such a tragedy. They had video of this story on local WTAE, with Caileigh's aunt talking about the family's meeting with Hillary. I can't find that video yet.
