About Girl Power 2 Cure


Founded in 2006, Girl Power 2 Cure is a dedicated and vibrant nonprofit organization leading a movement to end Rett Syndrome, a severe neurological disorder that primarily affects girls. We are here to respond to the urgent need for support, education, mainstream awareness and treatments.

For us, change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.

Our inspiration is our flower:  always in bloom with hope and positive energy, ready to grow for our cause worldwide.

OUR MISSION

To empower a movement to see Rett Syndrome become the first curable childhood neurological disorder.

WHAT WE DO

We educate and raise awareness.

Because girls with Rett Syndrome have the right to be heard. Through webinars, events, and awareness campaigns, we have inspired a movement of thousands, and need thousands more.

We support families.

Because they are the heroes, tirelessly caring for their daughters, sisters and granddaughters. We open our arms to every family and provide them with the resources and support they need to fight for their daughters and for a cure. From helpful product reviews and hands-on training to fundraising efforts, we walk with them on the journey that many of us have made ourselves.

We fund research. 

Because the world needs these girls. They are brave, they are bright, and they are beautiful. We cannot rest knowing Rett Syndrome is curable. We are determined to see the girls and women who are suffering live better lives. Through a strong partnership with the Rett Syndrome Research Trust, we fund research that is crucial to developing treatments and a cure.

We inspire action.

Because change starts with a simple belief - that girls losing the ability to walk, speak or use their hands for a lifetime is unacceptable.

Our flower is our guide, our cornerstone, always in bloom with hope and positive energy ready to grow wherever there is inspiration to fight for our cause.

I am not only a volunteer and donor, I am also a mother of a Rett girl. This organization is more than inspiring! They made me want to do more than just wish and pray for a cure, but rather become part of finding one! They make you feel so welcomed and understood, as if they have known you all your life.
