After fighting for 2 years to get diagnosed, we finally got a full diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder for Xander in 2012. That's when the fight begins, for services, understanding and education. My daughter Leia and her friends are fundraising on her younger brother's behalf this year to bring awareness to the greater community, how AUsome these kids are. It's not Autism Awareness, it's Autism Acceptance. Please consider donating to a worthy cause, to a Local Charity, where the money goes back into the community to support LOCAL families!
AutismUP is a group of dedicated families who donate their time, working with local companies to help support other families going through the same situation as us. We support activities that are family friendly where our kids can shine and be accepted for who they are. ASD can be a very isolating diagnosis for a family. AustimUP provides a safe place to connect with other families and help our kids for life.
Please consider joining our team and/or donating on behalf of Xander and our family to help raise the much needed funding to help kids like Xander reach their full potential. Help for today and Hope for tomorrow! Thank you!
