Giving Child with Autism Her Voice

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- It's a dream come true for a Triad family.
Tuesday, we told you how the Kassay family is trying to raise more than $7,000 needed to buy a critical device that will give 11-year-old Emily a voice.
Emily has autism and lost her speech before she was even two years-old. Last year, she had a brief taste of independence when she was able to use a helpful machine that speaks for her when she types on it. The school district had to take it back after two weeks, though.
The Kassay family got great news Wednesday. Jack Murphy from radio station 107.5 WKZL saw her story on News 2 and offered to buy the machine through his charity, Murphy's Kids.
