Reverse Rett

Imagine the symptoms of Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy and Anxiety Disorder… all happening at once.


This is Rett Syndrome.


Rett is a devastating neurological disorder caused by a single gene mutation on the X chromosome. It occurs almost exclusively in females and affects 350,000 girls and women. Around the age of 2, girls lose the ability to speak, control their hands and (most) can no longer walk. Breathing problems, seizures, inability to chew and swallow food, anxiety, and orthopedic issues are also common. Bright little girls become trapped in bodies that no longer cooperate.

But along with with this terrible diagnosis comes concrete evidence that it can be CURED. Lab experiments have proven that when the gene mutation is corrected, symptoms can disappear.

That's why this month, we are wearing our clothes backwards to raise awareness about the fact that Rett can be REVERSED.

Critical research is needed to get us to the finish line. So, please join the fight with a donation. Then, share the moment with your friends by posting a photo or video on social media of yourself or others wearing something backwards. Include #ReverseRett and a link back to this site (rettgive.org/reverserett).

Together, we can Make Rett History.

All donations go directly to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust.
