Lillian is my why. My daughter Lillian was diagnosed with ASD when she was about 6 years old. I didn't think she was any different and I was in denial that she needed intervention. I was afraid of what it would mean if she had it. Lillian is a bright and funny girl and very talented! I'm walking to help bring awareness to other people and moms just like me. Don't be afraid! Be proud!!
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.
It’s only through the dedicated support of people like us that Autism Speaks can continue their vital mission work. Each year, the Autism Speaks Autism Response Team makes direct contact with tens of thousands of individuals looking for advice or guidance and more than one million people access their free nationwide autism services and resources. They continue to partner and support research to improve the lives of people with autism by investing in science that will allow more personalized treatments and therapies. You can find out even more about where your fundraising dollars go at autismspeaks.org/our-work.
