Imagine the symptoms of Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Anxiety Disorders and Parkinson's all in one little girl......that is Rett Syndrome...... and the unfortunate reality for my 15 year old daughter. She is unable to speak or use her hands, has loss of motor control and circulatory and digestive disfunction. Yet everyday she has a huge smile on her face.

Please help us raise $$ for research in support of RSRT and The Tri-State Rett Syndrome Center at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center. If you cannot attend our gala on November 7, 2016, please consider donating here. No amount is too small---every bit brings us closer to 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 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.
