Special Olympics has helped me give back to the community and help out with people with disabilities.
So I help out with Special Olympics for the past 5-6 years because of my sister and she got me into helping out with Special Olympics, and I tried out a year and I liked it.
As an individual with co-occurring disabilities that included epilepsy, behavioral issues, and cognitive disabilities my brother has a lot to manage in his life.
I've had to grow up being people call my older brother stupid, ugly, and retarded. I've been arguing with people for as long as I can remember to not say the r-word.
My son is autistic and is bullied by the older kids. I have talked to the principle but the excuse is that they are in middle school!!
While in high school after I understood autism more in depth hearing the "R" word made me so furious, I am so defensive of my brother as well as any other exceptional individual that is called that.

1988 was my first summer games and the rest is history, thanks to my dedicated mother who takes time out of her busy schedule to take me to all my practices each and every week for the past 24 yrs.
