As you may know, my son, Stephen was recently diagnosed with autism. In my extremely limited time as the parent of an autistic child, it has been imperative to learn as much as I can as quickly as possible and the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) has already been such a valuable resource. The work that they are doing is incredible.
Please help me support OAR by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends.
Every dollar I raise will advance this great cause!
WHY CONTRIBUTE? 1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. By contributing, you’re supporting OAR’s mission to fund research and resources that help people with autism and their families today.
