My family is participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find a cure for autism. As you probably know, my son has an autistic spectrum disorder called PDD so autism is something that touches our family personally every day. Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 150 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every 20 minutes another child is diagnosed with autism. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon.

Walk Now for Autism 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. I will be walking on May 18 and would like you to support those affected by autism. You can sponsor us or donate to Walk Now for Autism and join my team online through my webpage at www.walknowforautism.org. Donations can also be mailed to Autism Speaks using the donation form located on my page or send a check made out to Autism Speaks and mail it to:

Please join me in my fight against autism. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of the more than 1 million Americans living with autism today.
