How Do You Raise Awareness?

I received an e-mail yesterday from one of our supporters, Hannah Sullivan (pictured here). Hannah writes:

I am 19 years old and my sister Katie was diagnosed with autism when I was about five.  She is currently 20 years old and I’ve always wanted to do something special for her so I’ll always carry her with me.

Last August, I decided to act on this promise and I got a tattoo on my back dedicated to her. After sharing it with my family, my father actually decided to get the same tattoo on the back of his calf.

I’m not sure if you’d be able to publish this on your website but I just wanted to share our story and show my appreciation for everything your cause does.

Hannah’s story is just one of the many unique stories we hear every day.  Are you or someone you know taking unique measures to raise autism awareness? Send your story to editors@autismspeaks.org.


Happy Friday!
