On Thursday November 15, The Villanova Chapter of Beta Theta Pi will be holding its annual "Beta Rose" event. The event consists of a competition between sororities ranging from rose sales to dance skits. All proceeds go towards benefiting the Miracle for Molly Campaign in support of the daughter of one of our alumni. We hope with your help we can develop a cure.


What is Rett Syndrome?

Rett Syndrome is serious lifelong neurological disorder that is caused by random mutations in a gene called MECP2. Diagnosed almost exclusively in girls, symptoms typically appear in toddlerhood. Many children with Rett are unable to speak, walk or use their hands. Breathing problems, feeding tubes, seizures, anxiety, gastrointestinal and orthopedic issues are common.

Despite the debilitating nature of the disorder our girls are so much more than a laundry list of symptoms. Their beauty and their strength inspire and motivate us.

Rett Syndrome stands apart from other neurological disorders due to the dramatic reversibility of symptoms in animal models. Our confidence that Rett Syndrome is curable guides our every decision.

Who is RSRT?

The Rett Syndrome Research Trust (RSRT) was launched in 2008 with a singular goal: to drive research to a cure for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders. As one of the few neurological disorders to demonstrate dramatic symptom reversal in the lab, Rett Syndrome has captured the attention of the world's premiere university and pharmaceutical industry scientists. RSRT is operating at the nexus of this activity, leading and advancing the research agenda.

In 2017 RSRT launched a three-year, $33 million strategic plan called Roadmap to a Cure. The plan prioritizes four scientific approaches that attack the disorder at its genetic core and offer the possibility of a profound reversal. Roadmap to a Cure is the only comprehensive plan ever developed by any organization anywhere to advance a cure for Rett Syndrome.

By funding the most Rett research worldwide, $58 million since 2008, we strive to put ourselves out of business as soon as possible.
