Inspiration Report

Jenny-McCarthy-headshot_sto.jpgJenny McCarthy is more well-known now as a mother, autism awareness advocate and bestselling author these days, although media does not like to forget she has been a Playboy model and remains Jim Carey’s girlfriend. She is speaking out letting the world know that she feels she has healed her son Evan of autism,  including on Popeater.com.

Although I realize this is a controversial claim, just the idea of a mother fighting for her cub as Jenny has is inspiring. Bringing attention to autism as she has can give parents with autistic kids hope. Taking action, and not laying down an accepting a diagnose, takes a lot of guts. It is scary going against a doctor’s orders. Trying to help her son, in any way she can, is to her credit.

 “Evan couldn’t talk — now he talks. Evan couldn’t make eye contact — now he makes eye contact. Evan was antisocial — now he makes friends. It was amazing to watch, over the course of doing this, how certain therapies work for certain kids and they completely don’t work for others … When something didn’t work for Evan, I didn’t stop. I stopped that treatment, but I didn’t stop.”
