Reaching Rosie

When Kara J. Morris discovered that her daughter, Rosie, had autism she vowed to do everything in her power to help her reach her potential. Their hope lay with special therapy in America, but at £17,000, this didn t come cheap. Kara’s only option was to try to raise the funds fast.

When four of her friends suggested forming a burlesque striptease ensemble to draw attention to her cause, Kara jumped in feet first. Their new group, The Full Monty Girls, faced the challenge of a lifetime. Never could they have imagined that their friendship, determination, and the support they received from their local community would go on to spread their message of autism awareness to millions of people around the world.
