Sometimes our professional and personal lives converge.
This is one of those times.
I am participating in an event to raise donations for Autism Speaks, a wonderful organization which funds science research and advocacy for people living with autism.
Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 88 children born today. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined. Research is crucial. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist.
More personally, two of my children are diagnosed with autism.
