Why I Walk for Autism Speaks
Dear family and friends,
As many of you know I PRIDE to be Emilio's mom! He is an extraordinary, wonderful and sweet boy. He has out-of-this world artistic talent that impresses everyone that sees it.
Emilio had very little words until about age four, his used to refuse to try any new food and was limited to just accepting a handful of options; he was terrified of the "happy birthday song" just because he associated that with a candles, I was not able to take Emilio to family or friends gatherings as he was very shy and not comfortable around crowds and loud noises... but with the help of early intervention, ABA, speach and ocupational therapies he has come such long way! That is why I believe in Autism Speaks! There is hope! There is a chance!
I am Emilio's protector, teacher, warrior and advocate. I am dedicated to helping him and other kids like him to reach their full potential!
That is why I invite you to join me to fundraise for Autism Speaks; your donation will help to fuel innovative research and provide critical lifelong programs and support for those with autism. My hope is that someday, no family will have to hear the words, "your child has autism". And, if they do, there will be so many options and answers available that they will not feel alone.
Your kindness and support is what we need to find answers and continue advocating.
Please know that no donation is a small donation!
From the heart of the mom of an autism worrior!
I earned my Walk Tee Shirt!
