As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

A Reason to Celebrate

I received this e-mail today from Daniel’s boss:

As most of you know, I am in the habit of supplying fully hosted parties, usually one during the summer and another around the Christmas Season, as a gesture of expressing our appreciation for everyone’s efforts and good work. Also, just for some relaxation and fun. This year, we want to do something different. The idea has 100% support from the intelliNet Management Team and we are hopeful that all of you will agree to participate as well.

Daniel and Tanaya’s son, Bryce, suffers from Autism. They are currently working very hard to raise a needed $7,650.00 to fund a Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Bryce which can help him. So far, Daniel and Tanaya have managed to generate $1,564.34 towards the required total. You can see all the details at

The idea this year is for us to use the intelliNet Summer Celebration Party as a fundraiser for Bryce’s cause, in the following fashion. intelliNet will supply the venue and the meat, but instead of the fully hosted style we normally do, we will make the gathering both Pot Luck and BYOB. For each couple attending, we will coordinate with you to bring a dish to feed 30 and you will need to bring your own drinks or alcohol. In turn, through the contributions of all of you, intelliNet can re-direct the thousands usually spent on fully hosting and make a contribution to Bryce’s cause for some thousands of dollars!

We all have good fortune. Please join with us to still celebrate our joint success, but also make a significant difference in the life of an innocent, less fortunate, child, related to our team. You have to eat and drink, anyways …

Thank you


I can’t even describe how emotional I got over this email. I was speechless! I know how much thought and creativity goes into the company’s celebration parties, and to know that they care about us this much, to put so much thought into this, it’s just so incredibly compassionate and generous.

Thank you David and the intelliNet Management Team. Their are not enough words to express our gratitude. Thank you.

Thanks for reading,
Bryce, Tanaya, and Daniel
