Jennifer Allen grew into advocacy for those with disabilities after her son Sam was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome.

She has recently been focusing her energy on public policy and laws to enhance the lives of those living with disabilities. We learn from Jennifer what can be accomplished through a mother's love.
