Girl Power 2 Cure stepped forward to realize a 5 year dream of mine to create an Educational site that supports the Education of Individuals with REtt Syndrome. WWW-RETT-U.ORG is a vibrant, growing, e-based learning site that provides courses for teachers, SLP's and parents to get the skills they need to EDUCATE the girls to their highest potential. We have a mentoring program that is equiping coaches all over the world to provide support and education for schools and families. When there is a cure, we want indivdiuals with RS to be as educated as they can be. Their potetial has for too long been underestimated and I am so grateful to GP2C for partnering with me in this important mission!

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.
