I am participating in Walk Now for Autism Speaks to help find the missing pieces of autism.

Autism Speaks is an awful organization and there are no missing pieces of autism.  There is us, here, and we’re not missing any pieces.

Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 88 children born today. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. 

Don’t compare Autism to things that kill people.

Research is crucial.  Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist.

Many of us don’t want a cure! 

  Our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders, and soon.

Walk Now for Autism Speaks is our chance to make a difference in the fight against autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join me in my fight as I raise money to help fund essential research. You can donate to Walk Now for Autism Speaks and/or join my team online using the links at the bottom of this page. Donations can also be mailed to Autism Speaks using the donation form located on my page or send me a check made out to Autism Speaks.

Thank you for taking an important step in the fight against autism.
