10-26-13 agnesian lovelight campaign

Do you know someone with an autism-spectrum disorder? One in 68 children has an autism-spectrum disorder (ASD), or disorder that interferes with a child’s social, behavioral and language development. This means that there are as many as 6,062 children under the age of five living in Fond du Lac County diagnosed with autism. This year’s 2013 Love Light fund drive, presented by the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation, will help uninsured or underinsured families that could benefit from the evaluations, therapy or assessment tools offered at the Agnesian Autism, Behavior & Communication Center (AABCC).    The AABCC, located at Doll & Associates, is the first center in the area to provide comprehensive, coordinated help to individuals and families. Families that call the center can expect to receive help and guidance.  Sarah Arnold, PsyD, and Teresa Davenport, PhD, NSCP, both with Agnesian HealthCare’s Doll & Associates, are serving as this year’s Love Light co-chairpersons.  Individuals can support Love Lights by purchasing a light in honor of someone they wish to remember or celebrate during the holiday season. This light will shine on the beautifully lit evergreen in front of Agnesian HealthCare. The cost is $10 per person. The names of those honored and remembered will be displayed through the holiday season in the St. Agnes Hospital and Fond du Lac Regional Clinic lobby areas. Love Lights can be purchased at both the hospital and clinic information desks, 430 E. Division Street.  The 2013 Love Light Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 11 at the St. Agnes Hospital lobby. For more information on this year’s Love Light project, call the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation at (920) 926-4959.
