According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in 68 children in the United States has autism spectrum disorder. The condition doesn’t discriminate based on social or economic status, and doesn’t care if a parent is rich and famous. Find out which celebrities are the parents of children with autism, and learn what they’re doing to spread awareness.

1. SYLVESTER STALLONE

Action superstar Sylvester Stallone’s youngest son Seargeoh was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3 after experiencing difficulty communicating. Though Stallone and Seargeoh’s mother grieved the diagnosis and searched for a cure, Stallone also once told his other son, “God and nature made him different. We have to accept Seargeoh the way he is and understand that his way is just more quiet and reserved.” In 1990, Stallone also filmed a PSA about autism.

Tragically, Seargeoh passed away in 2012 from heart disease. He was only 36 years old.

2. TOMMY HILFIGER

As he told NY Daily News in 2012, “The government is not involved in it. People aren’t donating enough money. There’s not enough research….It needs help, so we’ve become involved.”
