The family and friends of Austin Zuniga are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Autism. Please Show your support.

I want to tell you about my son. Austin is a wonder angel sent to us. He is lovable and enjoys music. He will be turning 13 years old in April. He does not like to be around a lot of people; stores really bother him the most. He prefers to be in his own world and is happy with that. He is growing and approaching his teen years and requires more time and attention. He is non-verbal and unable to write, read, and respond in a conversation.

In an instant our family dreams was put on hold trying to understand what was going on with our son. We have many restless nights wondering how we are going to be able to give him all the attention and support he needs and will continue to need. Austin was unable to attend regular school and we were forced into home schooling him. Since we started Austin has come a long way. He is now potty trained and can eat on his own. We still continue to give baths, assist him in all ways and keep him on schedule.

We are raising money to be able to purchase equipment in order to help communicate with him, build and create objects to help build his motor skills. Furthermore, to be able to make his life as simple and less stressful as possible so he can one day is able to be semi-independent.

We downsize our life, living on a couple parcels of land, and with only a small income coming in order to take care of his 24/7 needs. Please help to make his life worth living and to one day be able to share our land with others with similar needs.
