The Connect Community comes from an extremely diverse group of individuals across the globe. Read below how Susan Loeliger’s (from Gravic, Inc.) son Austin brightens up people’s day at his local Wawa.
We asked the Fragile X community to tell us about someone Xtraordinary in their lives.
We heard from parents, professionals, friends, co-workers, grandparents, employers, cousins, doctors, and mentors, who told us about Xtraordinary teachers, spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, babysitters, employees, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, doctors, occupational therapists, support professionals, patients, and siblings. We are thrilled and delighted they shared with us so we can share with you, and help raise awareness about Fragile X and the lives it touches.
“Austin has the brightest personality, which is key to our business. He is one of our “day brighteners” at Wawa store 8068 [West Chester, PA]. Austin creates personal connections with coworkers as well as customers; always remembers birthdays, weekend plans, and family members. He is also quick to do any task when asked, as well as the tasks he is already responsible for. Austin is a staple at our store, loved by both customers and coworkers!”
