The Irish Trio Team made up of Bill O'Donnell, Ann Brosnan and Shannon Loughran, are each running a leg of the Hambletonian Marathon Relay to help TEAM EVA raise funds for fighting Rett Syndrome.
Rett Syndrome is the most physically disabling of the autism spectrum disorders, primarily affecting girls, and usually strikes by 18 months of age. Imagine having a beautiful, healthy daughter! Imagine her first words, her first steps, everything she does is a miracle. Now imagine that this perfect little girl, begins to change. You notice that your little girl is not meeting those milestones anymore. She will require 24 hour care for the rest of her life.
Eva is a very special little girl to our families and has touched the hearts of so many. You can’t help but smile when you see her. She is so full of life and love. Please donate to help Eva and all those affected by Rett Syndrome.
All recent research indicates that a cure is not only possible but within reach and will reverse the effects of this debilitating disorder. Please find it in your heart to give to this worthy cause and be a part of the fight to find a cure.
