Aside from all things fashion and beauty related, one of my true passions is the field of developmental disabilities. Last year, I left my job as a developmental disabilities specialist to help my husband’s new business but that in no way lessened the burden I feel for the children and families who are affected by these conditions. On November 4th, I will be particpating in the “Autism Speaks, Walk Now For Autism” event in Tempe, AZ. Currently, the causes of autism are unknown and there are no specific medical treatments or cure. Physicians have no blood test or scan that can definitively diagnose the disorder so diagnosis of autism is based solely upon observations of behavior. Despite increasing national interest and high prevalence, autism research is one of the lowest funded areas of medical research by both public and private sources. If you feel called to, please visit my personal page and donate to my walk. Every little bit counts and can help make a greater impact on finding a cure!
