Join Me, Jenny McCarthy, The Ryder Foundation & Generation Rescue in SF

Posted Aug 27 2010 12:11pm 1 Comment
If you live in the Bay Area, please join me at the Jenny McCarthy & friends comedy show in San Francisco on September 11th . Proceeds benefit the Ryder Foundation and Generation Rescue, two organizations that help parents learn how to recover their children from autism.

Here is the video I made about how the co-directors of the Ryder Foundation recovered their sons. The video went kinda viral in 24 hours, thanks to Natural News editor Mike Adams' social media savvy.

Two moms in Northern California are on a roll. Jenny DeMaria and Maureen Block, co-directors of the Ryder Foundation  , once had children diagnosed with autism. The boys are now socially indistinguishable from their peers.

Block says both school-aged boys still have “educational challenges, but they have been recovered.” The rapid changes both mothers saw in their boys after trying a gluten-free diet motivated them to try different diet and biomedical interventions. And, the myriad interventions all add up. Block says, “Treating autism is like trying to get a train back on its tracks. It’s gone off-track and you need to get each train car, one at a time, back on the track.” 

DeMaria’s son was diagnosed as moderately autistic. Now he would be classified as having mild Asperger’s. “Ryder's challenges are now barely noticeable to an outsider,” De Maria said. "There were days I thought my child would never be able to dress himself or brush his teeth or sing a song or make a friend. Now he is the happiest, friendliest, most vociferous child I know. He keeps astounding us with his progress." 

After their rapid, and continuing success with their own sons, DeMaria and Block quickly got involved with  Generation Rescue  , Jenny McCarthy’s autism organization, volunteering as Rescue Angels to mentor other parents who were beginning the journey toward recovery. But that wasn’t enough ‘giving back’ for them. They wanted to do more. In 2005, they joined forces with two other women to found the Ryder Foundation in recognition of DeMaria’s son’s recovery.

“We have helped raise over $800,000 for autism charities,” said Block, “and we are hoping to move that number to $1 million with our next event, this September 11th, to benefit the Ryder Foundation and Generation Rescue."

That event in San Francisco promises to be another gut-busting comedy night. This year Jenny McCarthy will host the event which includes the Chelsea Handler comedians, acclaimed artist Joan Elan Davis, Bay Area celebrity chef Joey Altman, and students from Autistry Studios. Past events have included comedy moguls Dana Carvey and Robin Williams. Note: Due to the content, laughs are for adults only; the proceeds help the kids via autism charities.

Maureen Block and Jenny DeMaria discuss their boys’ recoveries and talk about the event in this video, which has gone “viral,” at  Natural News TV .  Please help The Ryder Foundation raise its one millionth dollar, while you laugh! For tickets, go to Comedy for Kids SF HERE .
