We all brag about our children on FB from academic achievements, to proms, graduations, and sporting events, but we don’t get to post those things about Casey.
See we live in a world where Casey is regarded by some as a retard, and sometimes unfortunately, as a freak, or as a young man who will never amount to much. I am thankful that he seems unaware of the brutality of this reality.
But yesterday’s MRI changed how some very important people view him. No Casey did not became an All-Star, or make honor roll, or recite the words we so long to hear him speak. Yesterday my friends Casey became a TRAILBLAZER. See this MRI was for the brilliant men and women the MD’s, PhD’s, & Researchers at The Mount Sinai Medical Center who are desperately seeking answers with regards to the autism epidemic.
They needed him. They needed his mind.
You see without investigation/research there are no cures, no miracles, and no hope.
The information they gather is not expected to help Casey, but what we do passionately believe is that future generations will have a life with perhaps fewer challenges and possibly less heartache then we have had to endure.
Remember NOT all superheroes wear capes.
