As an older sister to two incredible, beautiful, amazing girls with autism, I am extremely grateful for the amount of support from donors that help keep The Autism Research Foundation running. Since I was able to speak and to think on my own, I’ve known that my most important role in life would be to be my sisters’ voice.
They’re unable to thank you and to let you know the level of gratitude my family and I have for any and all donations that bring life to an organization that devotes their time and energy to bettering the lives of those on the autism spectrum, but I am.
I’m able to say that research on causes and cures continues to grow because of funding from donations of all amounts.
I’m able to say that children with autism are getting involved in sports and other typical activities because of the generosity of strangers.
I’m able to say that increased knowledge throughout the world about autism has become available thanks to the love that comes from those who care about talking about it.
I’m able to say that families who thought they could never support their child with autism have new hopes and dreams created by the efforts made by a few good people.
I’m able to say that new therapies and interventions have been discovered that have brought comfort to those living with autism because of the money raised in support of brain-based research by organizations like The Autism Research Foundation.
What I can’t put into words is the amount of love that families like mine have for donors. They are what keep our hopes alive, our dreams for my sisters big, and our lives in motion.
There is nothing that I’m able to say that could describe the feeling I get when thinking about there someday being a cure-all because people that I don’t know care about my sisters enough to give generously to research efforts.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
To make more contributions in support of families like mine, donate here.
