VH1 Classic Rocks Autism

So the DH and Jacob are watching the VH1 Classic show Heavy and their Rock Autism commercial comes on. It's always amazing that they start with the stat of 1 in 166 - any parent with a kid with autism knows that number. Actually, sadly, it is a little dated, now hovering at 1 in a 150. But it is very gratifying to see people who's music you grew up with out there raising awareness for your child and his illness, his disability. Jacob was excited to see KISS in the ad - I think he wants to join the KISS Army someday.

Thank to VH1 and its many artists for supporting kids like Jimmy.
