Girl Power 2 Cure

#RiseAboveRett in 2020!

Dear GP2C team,

Happy New Year! We are so thankful for your support, participation, and contributions in 2019 and look forward to another prosperous year in 2020. We are filled with hope as we anticipate many encouraging results from active or planned research trials. While the road has been long, and our patience tested, we are encouraged by the prospects of meaningful treatment and curative advances in the coming year.

We will not quit, and we will not rest. Our vision is clear for 2020 – continue to fund research, continue to support our families, and continue to advance our Rett University education and awareness programs.

We ask you to consider… what can you do to help in 2020?  Can you sponsor an event? Can you run in Disney Princess? Can you execute a Facebook fundraiser? You are our lifeblood, and we need each and every family to help make this year our most successful year ever. Please reach out to me or Amei – we can help you brainstorm, execute or administer whatever activity you might consider!

Thanks, and we wish you and your families a healthy and prosperous 2020!

Happy New Year! 

We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with their families.  We are so excited to start a new year filled with communication and literacy for those with complex needs.  With a new year comes the opportunity to review progress and potentially establish new goals and resolutions.   

  • Is your child making gains in their communication (using either soft or high-tech devices)? 
  • Are you seeing growth in their literacy?  
  • Is their education team supporting communication and using the best tools to advance their learning?  

We have goals for Rett University as well.  New courses are coming soon, and we have plans to revise our Rett U website and social media content… so stay tuned! Of course, our goal, every day of every year, is to support people with complex needs with their communication and literacy.

With every new year comes new goals and resolutions. For the Domol family, they have collectively committed to be a part of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Race Weekend, in February 2020. They will all run in honor of their beautiful Willa as a part of #TeamWilla.

“The Disney Princess Half Marathon Race Weekend serves as a perfect opportunity to be in a place that we love, benefiting a cause that we love.”

We are encouraged by the Domol’s participation, along with so many other families, as they support an incredible weekend for the Rett Community. Disney Princess 2020 here we come!
