Girl Power 2 Cure
Girl Power 2 Cure - Rett University is a 501(c)(3) organization chartered to raise funding to support:
1. Rett Syndrome treatment and curative research
2. General family resource and emotional support of children/families affected by Rett Syndrome
3. Educational programs for disabled and non-verbal children suffering from Rett Syndrome and other debilitating neurological conditions (Downs Syndrome, CP, Angelman Syndrome, Autism, etc.) which limit their ability to communicate, read, and write in traditional classroom settings (includes teacher and professional training/seminars for therapists and other specialists targeting services to complex-needs individuals).
Note: Rett Syndrome is a debilitating neurological condition which predominantly affects females, robbing them of the ability to speak, walk, or use their hands. It is caused by a random genetic mutation on the X-chromosome. 1 in 10,000 girls are affected, without regard to race, origin or any other common factor.
