Birthday Wish

Tuesday, 31 January 2012

No, you didn’t miss it. Yet.

But my birthday is coming. Soon. Veeeerrrry soon. This Friday.

Did you already get me a gift?

It’s OK if you weren’t planning on getting me anything.

However…{{if}} you were thinking of marking the anniversary of my natality in a special way, perhaps you would consider sponsoring me in this year’s Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is an autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families

Like our son, Beernut.

Did you know that autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 110 children born today? Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every twenty minutes another child is diagnosed with autism. Every. Twenty. Minutes. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon.

This April, our family will walk in honour of Beernut, who has wanted to do something to help “kids like me.” The best birthday gift in the world would be to find ways to help Beernut, and those like him, experience life free of the struggles that come with the diagnosis.

Keyn y’hi ratzon — May this be God’s Will.
