Sylvester Stallone is an actor, director, and writer who is best known for the Rocky and Rambo film series. Sylvester "Sly" Stallone is a Hollywood icon and Californian who, like so many parents around the world, has a child with autism. Sylvester Stallone and Sasha Czack were married from 1974-1985 and had two sons together, Sage and Seargeoh. Their youngest son Seargeoh Stallone has autism and is now a 33 year old adult.  Sylvester Stallone and Sasha Czack are Autism Lights because of their dedication as autism parents and their support of autism awareness and autism charities.

Sylvester Stallone has many memorable scenes from his dozens of movies, but this scene from Rocky Balboa (2006) is very inspirational.

In 1990, Sylvester Stallone recorded the following Public Service Announcement, where he shared about having a child with autism and encouraged people to contact their local chapter of the Autism Society of America if they knew a child who has autism.
