About this Event:
What do you do if you learn your child has Autism? People on the autism spectrum face many issues on a day to day basis. And the caretakers of these patients can face many challenges daily as well. Who do you reach out to for help? We will be touching upon some of these issues and how to navigate through this process. Our guest, Mieko Hester-Perez, has first-hand experience with her son, Joey. Deep within her soul, Mieko feels blessed to have Joey as her son and she strives every single day to share their journey. Mieko pledges to “leave no family behind” and every single day her mission is to help families improve the quality of life for their loved ones through unconventional treatments.
In 2009, Mieko Hester-Perez decided to go public with her son’s success with medical cannabis and since that day in 2009, she has become a source of inspiration and information for families looking to explore unconventional and holistic treatment options within the autism spectrum. Mieko diligently leads the pack with tremendous knowledge regarding laws, regulations, products and a plethora of family resource options. She possesses personal knowledge and experience navigating through treatment options resulting in positive outcomes for families throughout the world. Although medical marijuana is not known to be a cure for autism, it has proven to facilitate life for her son and has ushered him into documented progressive development.
The combination of 20 years of legal experience and over 15 years of special education knowledge, make Mieko a modern-day “warrior mom” within the industry. As Co-Founder of UF4A.org, she consults with families, autism organizations, universities and healthcare professionals. In 2012, Mieko was awarded the Evelyn DuPont Award for improving the lives of children with autism and she has also received special recognition from Congress for her many hours of community service and dedication. She most recently was also the recipient of the 2016 Lifetime Advocate Award at the Chalice Festival.
