Did you know that every 20 minutes another child is diagnosed with autism? This has occurred in my family.

When our son Noah was diagnosed with autism last year, we had a vague idea of what to expect but nothing could have fully prepared us for the extreme challenges that lie ahead. Autism affects marriages, siblings, and relationships with extended friends and family. In other words, it flips your family's world upside down. We want, more than anything, for our son to be able to socialize, experience emotions like us and be able to express himself to us. This is why organizations like Autism Speaks are so important.

I am walking in the fight against autism at Walk Now for Autism, joining tens of thousands of other people united by a single cause and dedicated to raising money to find a cure and build awareness for autism. The money raised at Walk Now for Autism supports Autism Speaks mission to finding the causes, effective treatments and a cure for autism through funding essential biomedical research. One in every 150 children is diagnosed with autism. Autism Speaks directs 75¢ out of every dollar raised to autism research, awareness and outreach.

I am well on my way to reaching my goal. Please help me reach my goal by making a donation. You can make a donation online or visit and search for my name.
Thank you for taking an important step in the fight against autism.
