OUR FAMILY STORY
In recent weeks, Josiah, my two year old grandson was diagnosed with Autism.
For any parent or family member, who receives such diagnosis for someone young in age can be challenging. But we are here today to show our love, support and appreciation to not only our family member but also to the community. We'd like to invite you to join us as we take a walk for Autism, in support of 'Team Josiah' this upcoming weekend. If unable to attend, we'd appreciate a donation. Big or small, It counts and we could not thank you enough for your support.
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.
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!
