Having two sons with Autism will light a fire under you. For me, it has caused a career change (I am going back to school for occupational therapy), I am a calmer, more patient parent to my children, and I am constantly learning about Autism and its treatments to help Steve and Dave reach their fullest potential.
Autism affects 1 in 110 children, yet, sadly, funding for research to determine a cause is alarmingly low. My family and I want to do our part and be proactive in this effort to raise funds.
But we can't do it alone. I am running my first half-marathon in Pittsburgh in May to raise money for the Organization for Autism Research. All we need you to do is spread the word.
Please help us in our goal to raise $2,000. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Thank you for your support!
