She told Access Hollywood:

“My youngest son — everyone knows — my son Diezel suffers from — or I should say suffered from Autism. I am one of the lucky parents. Early diagnosis changes everything. I will tell you this. I will shout it from the rooftops. My son Diezel is off the spectrum. Off the spectrum being autistic. Susan Wright, who unfortunately just passed from Autism Speaks, when she found out about my son and she called me immediately and said ‘Get him in this program. Do this, do that.’ She’s been an advocate in helping me so much. I miss her already. I mean, I can’t believe she’s gone.”

Wow, that’s a miracle!
