Girl Power 2 Cure

#RiseAboveRett in 2020!

Dear GP2C Family,

We hope this letter finds you well and hopefully returning to some normalcy in your respective regions! We too are looking forward to a return to “normal” as we prepare for the remainder of 2020 and the on-going fight to cure Rett Syndrome.

I want to encourage and thank all of our dedicated Disney Princess individual runners and teams, as we have opened registration for our 2021 10-year anniversary event! Day-one bib sales totaled almost 70, so don’t delay and order your bib soon. We are looking forward to our best and biggest Disney event ever!

Looking for great fundraising ideas… how about a GP2C virtual training run! Virtual runs are all the rage in this time of “social distancing”, and we can administer the entire event for you, from registration and social media promotion to medals and prizes. As an added bonus – we will count all proceeds toward your Disney Princess fundraising minimums!. Contact Amei and let’s get started!

Girl Power 2 Cure is fighting every day to:

  • Support and encourage Rett Syndrome families
  • Educate, raise awareness, and promote literacy for individuals with Rett Syndrome and other complex-needs conditions
  • Raise research dollars to support cure-focused and symptom-relieving treatments for our loved ones

There are many ways you can help… sponsor an event, host a giveback with a local business, promote a Facebook fundraiser, or simply commit to recurring donations. We have tons of ideas and can help start to finish! Contact Amei ( and let’s get to work conquering Rett Syndrome!

Rett University

Empowering parents, educators, and therapists with the knowledge and strategies to help students with complex needs reach their highest potential.

Rett University remote consults have gone world-wide! Egypt, Australia, England, and the United States represent a few of our past month’s virtual travels. While we are thankful to stay in-touch with our clients via technology, we do miss traveling to see all of you in-person. Note that we are able to do remotes with a variety of communication software and devices, not just eye gaze devices. 

If you would like a parent’s perspective on remotes, check out our blog post below by Jill Pratt from Tennessee.  If you are interested in booking a remote with Susan or Kourtney, please email   

We hope you are enjoying our free on-line lessons, book club, and Rett U how-tos.  Are you thinking about the next school year yet?  It’s never too early to start preparing for the support your student needs to be successful in their learning environment. Technology set-up, educational team training, IEP goals and plan development are just a few of the areas where we can assist, so call or email and let’s get started!

Monthly Blog

“While our journey with Kourtney and Rett University just started, it has been nothing short of mind-blowing thus far.  When the schools shut down in March, with no return in sight, I was determined to continue to push Jiselle and prep her for Kindergarten in the fall.  However, with a finance and accounting background, I had a momentary freak out on how I was actually going to accomplish this.  I also felt I needed some expert advice from those who know Rett kiddos inside and out in order to make progress with her eye gaze device…”
