McCarthy Cures her Son

Long before she appeared on The View and claimed that she was going to use her “big, loud mouth that God gave her to tell the world about autism,” Jenny McCarthy was doing a lot of research and good for the cause as she had a special connection to it – her son was autistic. It’s such a heartbreaking disorder and one that is becoming a raging epidemic and of course, when you have the kind of platform a celebrity does, it’s always nice to see them using that in a way to better the world. However, I was extremely skeptical when I first read this headline. Really? You cured your son? Can you even cure autism? It’s because of people like me that McCarthy has to do all of the hard work she does. I was completely misinformed. This is what she tells US about the road to her son’s recovery,

“Despite criticism from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Jenny McCarthy says she helped her son, Evan, recover from autism.

The actress – who believes the MMR vaccine was to blame for her son’s diagnosis – says a strict no wheat-and-dairy-free diet has changed her son from a quiet little boy who used to flail his arms around to a loving six-year-old.

“Before the vaccination, he was huggy, lovey, snuggly,” she says in the newest issue of Us Weekly. “Then it was like someone came down and stole him.”

McCarthy, 36, remembers when Evan began to come out of his shell while watching a SpongeBob episode. “I heard Evan laugh…I jumped on the bed and started screaming.”

She adds, “When he finally hugged me, I prayed, ‘Please God don’t let this be the only time.'”

“I made a deal with God,” she explains. “I said, ‘You fix my boy, you show me the way and I’ll teach the world how I did it.'”

The interview really made me stop and think. I don’t know Jenny or her son but I’m pretty sure that she’s not lying about this. And I can’t imagine how devastating it must be to have your child finally hug you and then needing to worry that it would be the last time. I guess the American Academy of Pediatrics may be skeptical for some of the same reasons I was but really, if what she did helped her son, why not tell the world about it? It may help others as well who suffer from the disorder and it may not but isn’t it at least worth trying? This is truly one feel-good story and I’m so encouraged by it that others will find the help that they need and that Jenny will continue to tell her story.
