There are just a handful of disorders that only affect females. Breast cancer is the most
prevalent. Rett Syndrome is just as devastating, and affects a potential one in 5,000 girls.
Condemned to an entire lifetime of struggles, these girls have been robbed of their ability
to speak, walk, crawl, use their hands. They depend on others for every part of their day.
Complications include seizures, sudden death in their sleep and scoliosis.
Today, there is no cure. But Rett Syndrome is CURABLE!
Amidst the mass confusion going on within their central nervous systems, they are smart,
strong, and waiting bravely for us to unlock the door to their recovery.
Researchers at Harvard, Baylor, UVA, Weill Cornell, Emory, Salk Institute, University of
Edinburgh and dozens of other top-notch institutions are delving into Rett Syndrome.
Not only will their work help thousands of girls and women worldwide, but their findings
have a direct impact on research on Autism, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer's
and many other disorders.
In essence, our girls may hold the key to a cure for millions of people suffering from
dozens of disabilities.
- Debilitating movement disorder that mainly affects females.
- The leading genetic cause of severe impairment in girls - most cannot
speak, walk or use their hands.
- As prevalent as Cystic Fibrosis, ALS and Huntington's.
- Another little girl is born with Rett Syndrome every 90 minutes.
