    Mirenda Rosenberg Autism Fundraiser Concert, BallyShannon, 9/Sept/2010

    9 Sep 2010 20:30
    I’m a superhero. By day I parent two little boys with Autism, by night (and weekends) I don an evening gown, grab a radio mic and perform soul music in front of crowds of people. I’m lucky to have such a release, but so many autistic families aren't. 

    ...I’m every kind of excited to announce that our Charity this year is the Autism Family Support Group, Donegal. This organization helps families by providing seminars, summer programs, and family support as well as creating Autism Awareness.
