Rett Syndrome Awareness Month 2016

October 7, 2016

Rett Syndrome Awareness Month is here! It’s important to spread the word about what Rett is and what causes it; how strong and amazing our daughters, granddaughters, sisters, and nieces who struggle with Rett and related disorders are (although very rare, boys can also have Rett and they and their families too are an important part of our community); what daily life is like when you have an afflicted child; and how research is moving us towards treatments and a cure. Here are some ways to share great information with your networks of family, friends, and colleagues. You can also make your awareness-building really count for the research by starting a RettGive campaign or contacting us about other ways to fundraise. All you need to get the word out about Rett is right here.
