Montana Connect has been championing children since it’s inception.

Please meet the first child featured in Montana Connect.

Meet Joey, and his amazing mother Mieko Hester Perez.

The Unconditional Foundation for Autism

Joey and Mieko Jan 2012

It wasn’t always smiles when I met this family 2+ years ago. It was pretty dismal actually.

Joey was at least 50 pounds lighter than he is now, emaciated, and withdrawn into his lil autistic world. He had not been eating, and Mieko discovered Cannabis, and started her fight. Please be sure to visit the foundation website for the entire story.

Mieko was a very determined mother who had never had anything to do with Cannabis. EVER. She worked in the legal profession, her family had law enforcement ties.

Cannabis was Taboo.

When a child is on the verge of dying, parents will do ANYTHING to save their child. Mieko had found herself in this position, and Joey is alive today because of a Mother’s determination.

In turn, the immersion of Mieko into the California medical cannabis community had it’s own challenges. On top of a full time job and a kid with autism, Mieko had an infant and a teenager in the house. Challenges presented themselves daily, if not hourly on some days, and Mieko battled through.

It has been a LONG haul, and I must say, I am very privileged to have had the glimpse into Mieko’s life I have had. It has been a very rewarding experience, one to be cherished for a lifetime.

Watching Joey – MAN – what a miracle. Visit the foundation site – go see for yourself. That young man was on the brink of death……

Today? Joey has gained over 50 pounds and eats foods he never experienced before. He has come out of his autistic “world” and interacts – smiles – and plays with his siblings.

Mieko – she battles on, protecting her children, and advocating for others. Always helping, always supportive for the parents who reach out.

Some may not like her advice, but rest assured, she speaks from experience. She has seen it all, and survived.

Survived and fought so Joey can have LIFE.

Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Please keep up with her story here: Mieko’s blog – a Mother’s Tale of Advocacy

Make it a point to share her story, help her to empower more parents, and bring more autistic children LIFE
