I believe that positive people can change the world for the better. My friend Dawn is living proof of that. When her son was diagnosed with autism, she decided not only to do whatever it takes to help him, she wanted to assist other families with children diagnosed with autism. She started For Jake's Sake - a charity named after her son - with other concerned parents and professionals.
For Jake’s Sake provides funding to families of children with Autism to cover copayments and therapies not covered by health insurance. Insurance companies and public schools may not always provide the amount or type of therapy that a child with autism needs, leaving the parents to pay for the bulk of their children’s expenses out of pocket. For Jake’s Sake believes that no child with Autism should be prohibited from therapies due to inability to pay, which is why the charity provides qualifying families with needed funding. And, with autism affecting 1 in 84 boys in the US, there are many families out there in need.
I am proud to be one of the 5 positive people on Team For Jake’s Sake who will run 26.2 miles on November 6. Your donation will not only encourage me to finish the race, it will have a positive impact on families and their autistic children.
Thank you! -Michele
