PJ Morrissey is a 17-year-old kid whose sister, Emily, has cerebral palsy. Because of his close connection to people with special needs and his relationship with his sister, PJ has taken it upon himself to spread her story and raise awareness. With April being Autism Awareness Month, PJ and Dr. Staci Carr joined Jeff to talk about PJ's relationship with his sister, the progress being made in autism research and more.

As part of their efforts, PJ and Emily have started a website called emilysbracelets.com where Emily sells handmade bracelets of all kinds to help spread the word and put a smile on the face of the person wearing it.
