Groundswell of Support for Memoir Author Monica Holloway’s Campaign - "Take Back the Face of Autism"

Los Angeles, CA, February 25, 2013 --(PR.com)-- When reports surfaced that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter had autism or Asperger's syndrome, autism memoir author Monica Holloway took action. She encouraged those affected by autism to “Take Back the Face of Autism” as part of a Facebook campaign inviting families to post photos of their loved ones on the autism spectrum to her Cowboy & Wills Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152328201900533&set=pb.2475128...). An outpouring of support arose with 53 photos of individuals with autism submitted since the campaign began on December 19, 2012.

Holloway urges the public to think of the other 1 in 88 American children affected by the complex condition, including her 15-year-old son Wills. “We welcome those affected by autism to continue taking back the face of autism through their photos and through these beautiful faces of their affected family members. Let’s put our kids’ faces forward and share the truth about autism,” says Holloway.

During a recent appearance on the autism web show Autism Live, Wills said, "I have Asperger's syndrome, a slight form of autism. It doesn't make you any different. It makes you who you are." The full interview can be viewed at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDM3HNvr1xA

Says Holloway, “Families from all over the country have sent in photos and descriptions of their loved ones with autism, as part of the “Take Back the Face of Autism” Facebook campaign. It’s been incredible and truly shows the support, love and acceptance of the autism community.”
