An Auburn cancer patient is urging a local congressman to help end the government shutdown.
And so far, she's delivered more than 100,000 signatures to his office.
Michelle Langbehn and organizers from a pair of activist groups walked into Tom McClintock's office in Granite Bay Tuesday and handed in more than 140,000 petition signatures that ask him to vote to fully fund the government.
If her name sounds familiar, it's because the 30-year-old has received plenty of attention after missing out on government-run clinical trials because of the shutdown.
McClintock told reporters that Langebehn is an inspiration for fighting so hard, but that House Republicans already sent the Senate a bill to reopen the National Institutes of Health -- and it wasn't taken up.
It was one of various piecemeal funding measures.
