I have a list of blog topics that help inspire post ideas. There are several blog post ideas that I want to write about but the topics are not topics I am prepared to write about right now. As I reviewed my list of topics, I came across “write about a worthy cause or charity” and decided this is the perfect time for this post.
The worthy cause/charity I am writing about is Autism Speaks in honor of my nephew. My nephew was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder when he was very little. Tomorrow he celebrates his 19th birthday! It has been 15+ years since his diagnosis and we have hoped for a cure or treatment plan for his disorder since that time. No cure has been found at this time but there has been a lot of progress. Progress that may not have happened as quick without the Autism Speaks Foundation.
Each October my family comes together to walk in the Houston Autism Walk in honor of my nephew. Although, they have not found a cure for Autism, they have come so far in the techniques for working with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
