Today, over 70 million children and adults are affected by autism. Each of them, have unique strengths, challenges and potential. Autism Speaks will be there for them. You and I can be too.
Receiving an Autism diagnosis for your children is an earth shattering moment. To find that a little piece of your child is trapped inside them, internalized, was one of the biggest blows I received. Through the support of the Autism community fostered and supported by organizations such as Autism Speaks, my wife and I were able to find support when we needed it most, guidance when we had no idea what we were doing, and the compassion and understanding we never realized how much we needed. I am walking this year for my children, Elicia and Laif, but also for the parents and loved ones of those affected by Autism.
Please join me by donating to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we have the power to enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. Thanks so much for your support!
