BENEFITING: MERIT ACADEMY
Regina Idemudia Umehai
This fundraiser is for Autism and special needs awareness. My daughter Jamie was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in February 2014. After running a battery of tests, assessments and observations I was given the terrible news that my daughter had Autism. This was the worst day of my life; it took me a while to process and accept what was going to be difficult journey that testing the limits of my perseverance, patience and faith. I had to learn everything I could find about Children with Autism and even then you sometimes feel inadequate when Autism seems to take over. Through prayer perseverance and placing my daughter in the right ABA therapy program, I have seen tremendous progress in Jamie and she is growing to become a thriving girl. The Funds raised will be donated to a non profit school to provide financial assistance to families so their child can attend a therapeutic school programs. Thanks for your donation. The ABA therapy services are very expensive and a lot of families can't afford to pay for services. We have been fortunate to get a lot of financial support from other charities to help pay for Jamie's ABA Therapy program. I have to do everything in my power to Pay it Forward.
