My Mommy is all "gung-ho" about bringing awareness to everyone about Autism. She is also "gung-ho" about trying to raise money for Autism research and making people aware of how IMPORTANT Early Intervention is. My Mommy is the type of person who can't just sit still and just let things happen. She always wants to be trying to help people. A few years ago, her friend Maria's son was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Then I as diagnosed about a year ago. And just recently, she found out another friend's son was also diagnosed with Autism. When this Autism thing hit that close to her heart, it was like a switch was flipped and she is now all about the cause.
My Mommy signed up for the 2012 and 2013 Arizona Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Between the two walks, she ended up raising a little over $4500 for my walk team. Several people came out last year to walk to support me. My Mommy is hoping to raise $3000 this year and get even more people to walk with us this year.
