ou want to say who really started the center, you could say it was Evelyn Laux. She put the whole thing in motion. She saw the possibility before I did, because she needed something to happen for Bobby's sake. She was a mother with a special problem, and she took on the challenge with passion. Her determination that Bobby would have as much of a life as possible led to everything that followed. Hundreds of our clients and parents from over the years owe her a debt of gratitude. And she also set an important precedent back then -- our parents have always been real leaders, wanting the best for their children.
