Can you imagine hearing the words “your child has autism”? In a split second, life – as you know it – has changed. For a different family every 11 minutes, tomorrow will never be the same. Approximately 1 out of 88 children in the United States are diagnosed with Autism, and 1 out of 54 of those children are boys.
Funding for research is so limited at this time. Autism receives less than 5% of research funding for childhood diseases. On October 12, 2013, my family and friends will be participating in the Walk Now for Autism Speaks walk in Dallas, Texas. By donating even $5.00 toward our walk for Autism, you’re helping children, like my son, Alex, have a future.
With your donation, you can help change a family’s life, like mine. Please help us make tomorrow be about soccer practice, school lunches and first words rather than therapy, doctor appointments and despair. Together, we will find the missing pieces.
