***Note: Carly Fleischmann will be blogging here tonight. Check back to read about her amazing story. You can even send her a message!
My name is Carly Fleischmann and as long as I can remember I’ve been diagnosed with autism.
Last year a story about my life was shown on ABC news, CNN and CTV here in Canada.
That is why I want to go on Larry King’s show on CNN, to be able to tell the truth and secrets of living with autism. But I need your help. My goal is to get five thousand signatures in two weeks for my petition to be on CNN with Larry King.
I know what you are thinking, probably the same thing my mom and dad are……it’s impossible. But if I have learnt one thing over the years of having autism, it is that anything is possible if you just believe. It’s just when you don’t believe, that’s when you don’t succeed.
My aunt’s friend set me up with a twitter page so you can follow my journey to sit and talk to Larry King. Thank you for believing in me as I believe in all of you.
Your optimistic and excited friend,
