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.
I know this first hand. Watching Carter, 6 years old, grow and develop everyday. At first I was saddened by the thought of him struggling with things we as "typically normal" people take for granted everyday. I have learned to love and appreciate him so much more. He teaches me something new everyday and he is growing everyday into a handsome human being both inside and out. Through him I learned to embrace who he is and not exclude him from things he want to do.
It’s only through the dedicated support of people like us that Autism Speaks can continue their vital mission work. You can find out even more about where your fundraising dollars go at autismspeaks.org/our-work.
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!
