Rodney Jr, Holly, Ryan Elizabeth, Rodney, and Robinson at Zo's Summer Groove (Jul 11).

For actress Holly Robinson Peete, the subject of Autism hits close to home. Ever since one of her sons, Rodney Jr,11, was diagnosed with Autism several years ago,  Holly  has been quite outspoken about the developmental disorder.

Though her family is well in tact, actress Holly Robinson Peete says that having a child with Autism can be quiet costly and can “destroy families”.


“You can’t even know how expensive it is to treat a child with autism, especially families who don’t have insurance – it’s next to impossible. It destroys families.”

Holly says that she and her husband, former NFL player Rodney Peete, started their foundation HollyRod to raise money for people suffering from both Parkinson’s and Autism.

“We started the HollyRod Foundation years ago to help people with Parkinson’s disease – my dad had Parkinson’s and then about five years into the foundation, my son was diagnosed with autism… Much like Parkinson’s, autism is very expensive to treat so we started raising money for the quality of life for people suffering from both because of our personal experiences,” she revealed at the 11th annual DesignCare event in Hollywood just last week.

Holly added: “We raise money through these fundraisers and we beg people to use their gorgeous homes, we beg all of our friends to get dressed up and play with us.”
