New iPad app aims to give autistic children voice

Any parent can attest that raising a child demands a lot of patience, understanding and love. When a child has a physical or mental disability, the demands on a parent are even greater.

While great progress has been made in recent years with regard to treatment options, some forms of breast cancer  remain inoperable and do not respond favorably to traditional cancer treatments.
