Welcome to My Personal Page
I'm raisings funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Many of you know that one of my children was diagnosed with autism. The neuropsychologist diagnosed my child before reaching three years old. It was very scary as we were unsure if my child would have speech, would be potty trained, would read, etc., etc. An early diagnosis with the assistance of a village (County/State services, therapists, teachers, doctors, family, friends, etc.) was truly important to provide my child with the needed services.
I was lucky to have many wonderful people in the “village” to assist my child. My child achieved many successes – Eagle Scout, Black Belt in karate, high school graduate, drives, works full time, commutes to work, has a group of friends to name a few.
When my child was diagnosed, 1 in 100 children were predicted to be impacted with autism. Today this number has increased significantly – 1 in 68 children. 1 in 68 means that based on these numbers, we have 3.5 Associates at our Hotel impacted . . . if not more, through each of our family and friend base. As I can attest to, the services available through Autism Speaks truly makes an impact in supporting a diagnosed child and the immediate family.
Please support me by donating and help me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can enhance lives today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow!
