Submit Your #AutismIs Entry

“Along with the gifts came the challenges. I would not say it was an easy journey. The dynamics in my household while growing up were at times overwhelming. I recall the many times my brother, Matthew, would self-harm. It was difficult to watch, and even more difficult to understand given that I was so young. Now as an adult, I can understand how those experiences shaped the man that I am today. I want to hear about your experiences and how they shaped you.” –Jason Cherry

#AutismIs what prepared me to battle cancer in my adult life, and become a warrior in so many ways.
