"I use to wonder what my purpose i life was. I would pray for my purpose to be revealed to me.
After my son's diagnosis of Autism (at 18 months), I was initially devastated. I did not understand it. I could not wrap my head around it. Once I began reading, researching and speaking to others, I realized that this was my purpose in life and I vowed to fight.
I have fought hard over the last few years in insure that my son, Rylan is treated with respect and dignity as we all should be. I learned new and different information daily pertaining to Autism. This world is a daily struggle for individuals with Autism. Because of speech delays or being completely non-verbal, individuals with Autism often cannot express what is causing their discomfort, excitement, etc".
For RYS Sake wants to bring as much awareness as possible to the public concerning Autsim. We know that creating this non-profit organization will allow us the opportunity to help so many individuals and families living with Autism.
