Local Honorary Walk Ambassador: Lori Barrett

I am a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a niece, and a grand-daughter! I am a full time working mom of 9 year old twin boys, one of whom was diagnosed with autism at the age of 5 and I relish in my role as Cameron’s advocate.

Our Family has participated in the Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada for the past two years, in both Montreal and Ottawa and I am proud to be this year’s Ottawa Ambassador. I hope that I can help raise awareness about the ASD and help ensure that Cameron has the tools he needs to be the very best he can be.  Join me and my family in Ottawa on Sunday, May 31.
