Support our annual campaign to cure Rett Syndrome!
DREAM BIG!! This is a story of dreams...dreams that were smashed when Emma received the diagnosis of Rett Syndrome at age 2. Gone were the dreams of first words, first kiss, first day of college, marriage and watching your daughter become a mom. But thanks to Girl Power 2 Cure and Rett Syndrome Research Trust, and all of you who have supported us year after year, we have started to dream again. Dreams of a cure no longer seem out of reach. The dreams we had during those first 2 years before Rett Syndrome are coming back. Abby's dreams of Emma playing with her, helping her with homework, talking to her about boys...all the sister things two girls do...might be realized. If we can cure this beast...and I believe we can...we can achieve our dreams, Abby's dreams but most of all Emma's dreams.
This is our chance to win some of the much needed dollars to cure this disease. There is more science than funding right now so this is so critical to us. Please help us in any way you can. No donation is too small. It's all of us coming together that gives us strength.
Thank you from our hearts.
Kevin, Allison, Emma and Abigail
Girl Power 2 Cure wrote -
Girl Power 2 Cure is a dedicated and vibrant nonprofit organization leading a movement to end Rett Syndrome, a severe neurological disorder that primarily affects girls.
We are here to respond to the urgent need for support , education, mainstream awareness and treatments. For us, change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.
Our inspiration is our flower: always in bloom with hope and positive energy, ready to grow for our cause worldwide.
WHAT WE DO
We educate and raise awareness. Because we must speak for those who can't.
Through webinars, events, and awareness campaigns, we have inspired a movement of thousands, and need thousands more.
We support families. Because they are the heroes, tirelessly caring for their daughters, sisters and granddaughters.
We open our arms to every family, meet them where they are and provide them with the resources and support they need to fight for their daughters and for a cure. From helpful product reviews and hands-on training to fundraising efforts, we walk with them on the journey that many of us have made ourselves.
We fund research. Because the world needs these girls.
They are brave, they are bright, and they are beautiful. We cannot rest knowing Rett Syndrome is curable. We are determined to see the girls and women who are suffering live better lives. Through a strong partnership with the Rett Syndrome Research Trust, we fund research that is crucial to developing treatments and a cure.
We inspire action. Because change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.
Our flower is our brand, the cornerstone, always in bloom with hope and positive energy ready to grow wherever there is inspiration to fight for our cause.
