President Barack Obama talks to Jake Miller before signing into law the HR 2019, the Gabriella Miller Kids First Research Act, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Thursday. It directs $126 million in federal money to be spent over the next decade to research pediatric cancer and other childhood disorders. Her parents and brother watched Obama sign the bill. Gabriella pushed Congress to pass the law in an emotional video posted to YouTube before she died last October. The Leesburg, Va., girl told political leaders: "Stop talking and start doing."
