BENEFITING: GIRL POWER 2 CURE INC
ORGANIZER: Girl Power
My beautiful and smart 2 year old granddaughter, Violet, was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome on May 12, 2016. We were devastated, but she remains such an inspiration to all of her family and friends. She never gives up and neither will we until there is a cure. Rett Syndrome has robbed her of her ability to speak. Rett Syndrome causes her to wring her hands constantly while she's awake and flails her arms and loses her balance. Violet is mobile by wearing braces on her feet, but we do not know how long that will last. Rett Syndrome is a thief in the night and could come without warning to steal more of her abilities. However, Rett Syndrome cannot take away her ability to love and be loved or her ability to learn. She speaks through her eyes so much that I can actually feel the love she has for her family when she looks at you. She is working so hard on an eye gaze technology device to learn to communicate using her eyes. She is my inspiration, and I never want to imagine life without her. Please help Girl Power 2 Cure win 1 million dollars with the Revlon Million Dollar Challenge. This would help Violet and other girls and women with Rett Syndrome live a happy and fulfilling life with resources, research and a cure one day. Won't you please donate at least $10 to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of Girl Power 2 Cure? For more information, please read below about Girl Power 2 Cure and their mission Thank you!
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.
