THE STORY:

What is childhood apraxia of speech?
Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder. It is an uncommon disorder in which children have difficulty making accurate movements during speech.  This strain in speech is not caused by muscle weakness or paralysis.  The brain has problems planning to move the body parts (e.g., lips, jaw, tongue) needed for speech. The child knows what he or she wants to say, but his/her brain has difficulty coordinating the muscle movements necessary to say the words effectively in order to communicate.

My wife Susan and I are running the TCS NYC MARATHON on November 2 (less than a month away) in support of children like Christopher Dejesus. Chris is a wonderful little boy who brightens our days and touches the lives of anyone he meets with his positive attitude and infectious smile, despite APRAXIA!
 
I have never run a Marathon just like some of these kids voices have never been heard! In my first attempt at running a Marathon I would like to do so in support of the fight for a treatment that would cure Chris and other children who have been affected by Apraxia.
 
HELP TEAM CHRIS BRING THEIR VOICES TO THE EARS OF THE WORLD!
 
PLEASE DONATE TO FIND A CURE FOR CHILDHOOD APRAXIA OF SPEECH.
