Bacon & Juice Boxes for POAC

August 13 - August 26

In this campaign the star of the show is: Eric. Now navigating his teenage years, he still surprises us daily. The days aren’t always easy. We try to remember the happy and survive the sad. We are blessed with the greatest extended family on the planet. Without their help our family may have crumbled a long time ago. It definitely takes a village.

We love getting to share our journey with all of you — we lovingly refer to as our “Bacon Bits.” It’s like having an enormous super secret and very special extended family. Thanks for sharing your lives with us.

    Anna & Eric

    14 yrs old

Anna Turning is a 17 year old full time student and competitive gymnast. She has grown up along side her 14 year old brother, Eric who was diagnosed with autism at age 2.5. She has been involved every step of the way, and has been his best teacher and therapist and also is his biggest fan. She didn’t grow up with the typical sibling experience, and many times has had to make sacrifices about her own wants and needs for the sake of her brother. She is wise beyond her years and has become a vocal advocate for autism awareness with her peers. She regularly volunteers in programs or initiatives for special needs children such as: gymnastics classes, buddy programs and even at therapy centers.

Eric’s favorite place on the planet is Sesame Place- and he loves hugs from his friends: Cookie Monster, Count, Bert and Ernie. At home, Eric’s favorite thing to do is ride his hoverboard. He loves water slides, and jumping waves in a pool or ocean. He just graduated 8th grade and has moved on to a new “high school” for special needs children.
