FASD Hope is a podcast series about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), through the lens of parent advocates with over twenty years of lived experience.

It's September- FASD Awareness Month! Episode 153 of FASD Hope jumps into the ring of AWESOME FASD Advocacy with Jeremy Elliott and William G. of "Embrace Our Journey".  Jeremy Elliott is a martial arts teacher, champion and owner of United Family Martial Arts in Niagara Falls, Ontario (Canada). He is also a Top 500 Pro Wrestler.  Jeremy created the "Embrace Our Journey" FASD Advocacy campaign with his teen godson, William G, an FASD self-advocate. Together, Jeremy and Will are champion FASD advocates!

In this MOTIVATIONAL episode, Jeremy and William discuss: the beginnings of "Embrace Our Journey", the MANY FASD Advocacy events they have for September and October, how martial arts and wrestling has made such a powerful impact (and support) in William's life, the benefits of finding a martial arts school that can be a good fit for students with FASD (or other brain based diagnoses) and their words of hope for listeners.
