R&B singer Toni Braxton participated in the Autism Speaks celebration event of World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness Month at the New York Stock Exchange this past Friday.
During the celebration event, the 6-time Grammy Award winner got emotional when speaking about her autistic son Diezel. “When I first found out he was autistic, I was a mess,” Toni recalled. “I blamed myself, I thought it was something I’d done. And out of nowhere, Suzanne Wright reached out to me and said, ‘You’re not a victim. And together, we’re gonna hold hands and we’re gonna walk through this and we’re gonna help your son Diezel.’”
