Never before have I had the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for something so special to me.
My son Mason is seven years old, and he is the most incredible person I have ever met. Mason exemplifies kindness, love, and a purity that is unmatched.
I am so proud of how far Mason has grown, and it wouldn't have been possible without the teachers, doctors, therapists, and so many others who helped find him outside the box solutions to any problem that stands in his way of prosperity.
Mason is a child on the autism spectrum, but you couldn't tell him that. Fundraising for this cause will help others gain the assistance they need to be as happy, healthy and independent as he is.
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 54 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.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal.
Never expected, always appreciated.
