In May of 2009 God Blessed with our youngest of four girls "Rianna", in May 2011 Rianna was diagnosed with RETT Syndrome. Rett syndrome is a devastating neurological disorder seen almost exclusively in females. It is the leading genetic cause of severe impairment in girls. It is the only autism-spectrum disorder with a known genetic cause. Little girls with the disorder are born without any signs of the syndrome. By the age of 2 years old, loss of language and motor skills are prominent; breathing, digestion, and sleep patterns are dysfunctional; scoliosis begins; teeth grinding occurs; and seizures develop. Rett syndrome leaves its victims profoundly disabled,requiring assistance with every aspect of daily living. These beautiful little girls, from the outside, look like perfect angels. However, Rett syndrome takes over and robs them of a healthy life. A girl is born every five hours with Rett Syndrome
A study was recently funded that suggests that the symptoms of Rett syndrome are reversible! With this news, now more than ever, your support is needed!
