In Memoriam: Suzanne Wright, Founder of Autism Speaks
We are saddened to learn of the death of Suzanne Wright, Founder of Autism Speaks. Suzanne and her husband, Bob Wright, co-founded Autism Speaks in 2005 after their grandson, Christian, was diagnosed with autism. Autism Speaks is now the leading autism science and advocacy organization.
Suzanne was a passionate grandmother and philanthropist who, with her husband Bob, raised issues of children with autism worldwide to bring about global awareness. Suzanne remains an inspiration to Madison House Autism Foundation as we raise awareness, acceptance, and create opportunities for individuals who have reached the age of 21.
