EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012

THE STORY:

My daughter was diagnosed with autism two years ago.  I personally know how helpless parents can feel when they learn their child has a disorder.  We were initially reluctant to tell anybody, for fear that she would be labeled and scrutinized.  Now we realize the importance of educating the public about autism.  It is nothing to be afraid of.  It is not contagious.  It just means that she sees the world differently than we do.  To quote the movie, Temple Grandin, she's "different, not less."  Please consider sponsoring me in the LA Marathon.  Together we can raise money in an effort to have a better understanding of the brilliant minds with autism.

What is Autism? Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically affects children between the ages in 18 months to five years of age. Autism currently affects 1 in every 110 children today. It is estimated there are over 1 million people in the United States alone with autism. Autism affects each individual differently and at different levels of severity. Some people with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live independently. While others who have less severe symptoms, can communicate, and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own. There is currently no cure.
