I am pleased to express my support for SAY, a non-profit organization that uses the arts as an innovative and effective approach to improving the lives of young people who stutter.
I had a very debilitating stammer for most of my life. I don’t think I would have used the word ‘debilitating’ to describe it, if there had been such a mother figure of empathy, like SAY, that was helping me.
Tragically, millions of children who stutter are suffering in silence, and I'm honored to lend my voice to help SAY continue to empower children to find their own voices.
