Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am raising funds to support a cause that is important to me and my family while accomplishing a personal goal. My nephew Nathan was diagnosed with autism on December 12, 2016. He has come so far over the last 2 years and while the road ahead is sure to be filled with trials and tribulations, we also know that it will also be filled with immense amounts of triumph. Nathan is the strongest, bravest, and most amazing little boy I have ever met and he continues to inspire not only me but everyone around him with his determination to persevere every obstacle thrown his way.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. They empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
