A Cause for Celebration!

Hello everyone, I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything, let alone another comic, but I want to report some GOOD NEWS as starting October 1st of this year, Autism will now be covered by Insurance in my home state of Michigan, thanks to the Autism Insurance Reform Bills that passed the House Vote earlier today!

I could not be happier to report that my very first comic, now no longer applies in Michigan:

I want to say THANK YOU, so very much to everyone who made phone calls, sent e-mails, wrote letters, signed petitions, participated in the Autism walks, or in any other way lent their support to this issue and this legislation.

And if you happen to live in Alabama, Alaska, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi,  Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, Washington D.C. or Wyoming all I can say is KEEP PUSHING! Keep the pressure on the politicians and it CAN HAPPEN!  It's a marathon for sure, not a sprint, but progress will be made when people work together and never give up.  30 States down - 20 (+ D.C.) to go!
