Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) July 29, 2009 -- Generation Rescue and AutismOne are delighted to announce their partnership to better meet the needs of the autism community in order to help children and educate parents and medical professionals. Based on shared values and each organization's expertise the alliance will provide creative and innovative solutions to many of the autism, ADHD and chronic illness community's most pressing problems.
Ed Arranga, executive director of AutismOne said, "The possibilities are endless. We need a dream team to win and Generation Rescue's crucial mix of education, analysis, outreach and inspiration immediately impacts the debate. Their commitment and passion provides the critical mass to help change everything."
Stan Kurtz, president of Generation Rescue, echoes the sentiment. "I have always admired AutismOne. We both advocate for child safety and share a common vision of care, treatment, recovery, and prevention. Together we will arm parents and professionals with the latest techniques on living a healthy lifestyle and educate how autism, ADHD and chronic illness are preventable and reversible."
Two initiatives from the combined efforts are an expanded AutismOne conference and a Stay at Home Moms March. "We know how difficult it is for moms to get involved in advocacy efforts," says Teri Arranga, "so we've created a national neighborhood campaign that recognizes moms need to be at home but still want to be involved." The Stay at Home Moms March realizes a mother's role in the recovery process of a child and will be the largest autism advocacy initiative ever undertaken. "We are proud to be spearheading with AutismOne a game-changing event of this magnitude," stated Candace McDonald of Generation Rescue. "It's time we developed a national network that gives moms a voice and I believe the community is more than ready to be mobilized."
"Look for the AutismOne/Generation Rescue conference to embrace greater concerns of the autism community and include world renowned professionals who are new to the cause," says motivational speaker and cookbook author Lisa A. Lundy. Cross pollination among individuals and disciplines is the "engine" of scientific progress. "Jenny McCarthy has played a vital part in the last two AutismOne conferences," says Laura Rowley, associate director of AutismOne. "We could not be more thrilled to be working more closely with Generation Rescue. Personally, I can't wait to get started." Generation Rescue's partnership with AutismOne accelerates the process forward.
Over the coming weeks more details about the AutismOne/Generation Rescue conference, the Stay at Home Moms March, and other initiatives will be made available. Join us and be part of the generation that ends autism.
