What's The Story?

Society & Culture

Frank Antoine personifies empathy and compassion. His younger brother has autism. He recalls the struggle his mom faced when bringing his brother to a barbershop. When Frank was 12 he cut his brother’s hair so he wouldn’t have to go to the barber. Frank is keenly aware of the many challenges a person with autism and his family face, and he is passionate about easing the way. Frank figured if he could take one challenge off the plate it is worth it. Today he is a barber and offers free haircuts to anybody with autism. The gratitude from parents is more than enough. It has been quite a journey for Frank Antoine from that first haircut he gave his brother to today. Tune in and find out how he got here and the people that helped him along the way. His non-profit is called Fading Autism.
