It’s October and Rett awareness month! Gabby and her army are spreading Rett awareness and are raising funds for a cure! A cure is so close and funding is so very important. So for the month of October we will be raising as much money as possible with the Rett syndrome research trust (RSRT). All money raised goes towards Rett research, clinical trials, and gets us that much closer to a cure. Rett syndrome makes her body a prison, it takes her breath, her voice, her ability to walk, use her hands, her Independence. It gives her seizures, heart problems, scoliosis, brittle bones, gi issues, apnea, and unbearable pain. Help set Gabby and every other child living with Rett Syndrome free! This could be your child, don’t wait until it is! Rett syndrome has been reversed in labs. Be part of the revolution. You can make a difference! Will you help us?!


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 the development of treatments and cures 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.

By funding the most Rett research worldwide, $35 million since 2008, we strive to put ourselves out of business as soon as possible.
