Dear Donor,

My name is Jessica and I am attending the Son-Rise Start-Up program thanks to your generous donation. This experience would never have been possible since my husband and I recently closed our business and we are not financially stable. My daughter’s name is Mara and I have enclosed a picture. She was diagnosed in January of 2012 with autism and we are excited to start a part-time Son-Rise program next month. I believe everything happens for a reason and your donation was given at the perfect time and I believe our family will forever be changed.
