Girl Power 2 Cure

#RiseAboveRett in 2020!

Dear GP2C/Rett University Community,

I hope this letter finds everyone well and thriving in these uncertain times. While the world is certainly focused on COVID-19 and it’s far-reaching impacts, I know that families of Rett children and adults are hyper-concerned for the health of our medically fragile loved ones. Our daily rhythms have been undoubtedly affected. But, I know you are taking the extra precautions that we all need right now. Please know that we are thinking of you daily and praying for everyone’s well-being.

GP2C and Rett University are doing what we can to help during this time. I hope you have availed yourselves of the many free activities, therapy and educational resources that we have identified, both on our social media pages and on the GP2C & Rett University websites. We will continue to provide this content for you throughout the crisis… as long as it takes. Also, we are closely watching other Rett Syndrome organizations and other websites. As we identify useful information and resources from these folks, we will pass these on to our community here.

We are a community characterized by our hope for a better future, even before the onset of this crisis. We, of all people, know how to adjust, persevere, and look forward to better times ahead. We do this every day of our lives, well before COVID-19 arrived. I have great faith in your resolve and ability to weather this. You have been practicing these traits for many years. We are strong together and will get through this… together.

Please stay healthy and stay in touch. We will also.

As we consider you our family, we understand the challenge it has been for many of us to have our lives and schedules change without a moment’s notice. With school closures across the nation, and all over the world, we want to be there for you in any way that we can. Supporting families in times of hardship is one of our greatest goals and highest priorities. With that in mind, we have created a collection of free home learning resources to help ease the transition. We hope you find these resources helpful, and please know you are always in our thoughts and well wishes!
