On October 19th, marathon day, everyone on TEAM EVA will be working towards one common goal; to raise awareness for Rett Syndrome.
PLEASE HELP US ACHIEVE OUR GOAL: CURE 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. It is caused by mutations on the X chromosome on a gene. As the cascade of Rett Symptoms descends, a child loses acquired skills, normal movement and speech, then begins the long regression that may leave her in a wheelchair, unable to communicate or use her hands. Extreme anxiety, Parkinson-like tremors, seizures and orthopedic problems are common.
I greatly appreciate your donations!
