Urgent Need to Support Dr. Anju Usman

If you are in or within traveling distance of the Chicagoland area, please make every effort to go to the fundraising event for Dr. Anju Usman, who is a skilled and sweet doctor to so many children with autism. If you met her in person, you would know that she is in the top tier of sweet people in this world, but dirty politics is threatening her future healing efforts and jeopardizing the ability of children to be greatly helped by her. On September 8 in Chicagoland at the Blues Bar in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, many from the autism community will be honoring Dr. Anju Usman to recognize the outstanding medical care she has provided to thousands of children with complex medical issues and support her ability to continue to provide appropriate medical care for children, including those with autism.

While emerging scientific evidence has determined that children with autism have a higher incidence of immune dysregulation, gastrointestinal disease, mitochondrial dysfunction, and other complex health issues, many physicians are unaware of these underlying medical conditions and they can remain untreated.

There are dedicated physicians, such as Dr. Usman, who have come under criticism for their willingness to look beyond the autism label to provide appropriate diagnosis and treatment for the various medical conditions. Their ability to treat children individually while incorporating findings from emerging science may be threatened. Our children deserve to have access to physicians who are willing to properly identify and treat all their medical conditions.

Please join others in Chicagoland on September 8 to celebrate Dr. Usman’s work and dedication to our children. The future of our children’s medical care depends on all of us participating. If you are local, please attend or make a financial gift. For long distance families and friends, please consider a donation at www.standbydrusman.com.
