Welcome to My Personal Page
I am running the 2020 NYC Marathon while raising money for Autism Speaks.
Those with Autism face challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The CDC estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum. My son Angel is one of those children.
Angel is the happiest boy you'll ever know. He is energetic, kind and a big teddy bear. He enjoys swimming, tight hugs, the outdoors and music. His retention of information is phenomenal!!! Angel can memorize a lesson in just one sitting. He can complete the most complex puzzles with ease. He is my little helper at home and the best student in school. He keeps everything organized, from his classroom to the supermarket shelves. His toys are lined up and in size/color order.
However, Angel struggles with any deviation from his normal routine, as do others with Autism. He's super rigid and can often have a hard time adjusting to new environments. Sometimes he bounces back easily, unfortunately this is not always the case. There are times I breakdown with him, but I have to be strong. With the proper training, we have learned to be better parents to Angel. We have learned to deal with the challenges that Autism presents in our daily lives. We have taught family members how to deal with Angel's difficulties and how to spot others who might be dealing with the same struggles and assist with kindness, compassion and LOTS of patience!!!!!
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions and it empowers people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information. This is a lifelong condition and families like ours will require services for life.
Please help me raise money while supporting a cause that is very dear and close to my heart. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will have a huge impact on Angel and others like him.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal!
