The Power of Support

Last Wednesday evening the York Harbor Inn opened its heartwarming doors to the Blue Light Autism Awareness Fundraiser.  The event was complete with food, drinks, dancing, open auction and a silent auction.  Yet these were all invisible to the love and understanding  in the room.  Everyone had a wonderful time;  the staff who volunteered and made everyone feel at home, the parents and their children were relaxed and having fun and most important funds were raised for Autism research.

As a volunteer  the event made me realized your experience; a stroke; aphasia; brain injury; people are willing to support you and make you feel less isolated and learn to enjoy life again.  At some point there will be an Aphasia Awareness event and I can only hope is will be as successful as  the Autism  fundraiser.
