Raffles, research, resources and beyond!
Dear GP2C Team;
As the holiday season approaches, we always like to reflect on the accomplishments of the passing year. We have so much to be thankful for, and so much to thank you for also. You and your families, friends, and networks of supporters continue to demonstrate tremendous resolve in the fight against Rett Syndrome, and keeping our children ready for the future.
Rett Syndrome is tough. It’s hard to watch the physical and emotional toll. It’s hard to see your child or your grandchild struggle. It’s hard as a grandparent to see what it does to your children. But GP2C exists, at its very core, to bring hope for all families dealing with Rett Syndrome. We have a hashtag – #HopeInAction – and it is the heart of all we do.
The Girl Power 2 Cure November giveaway is brought to you by ARK Therapeutic! ARK has generously donated a gift pack of drinking products to make every-day life a bit easier for our children! ARK Therapeutic was started by an SLP and her engineer husband who identified a need and developed an innovative solution! We are so grateful for their support!

GRATITUDE FOR COMMUNICATION
Do you have a non-verbal relative or friend? If so, then you likely realize the power and importance of communication. We are so incredibly grateful when our loved ones are able to communicate. As a sibling of someone who was non-verbal, all I wanted was to hear my sister talk. (Read the entire blog HERE!)
Mark your calendars and get ready for our Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale! From Friday 11/29 through Monday 12/2, we will offer 25% off all merchandise and Rett University courses! Check this link and shop till you drop!
Family Support Blog
Meet the Krauskopf family! As seasoned veterans in the fight against Rett Syndrome, they are perfect examples of #RisingAboveRett! Elisa and Kenneth have three beautiful daughters, and their youngest Tori, has Rett Syndrome. They have faced many challenges and heartbreaks over the last 21 years, but have also enjoyed many triumphs, persevering and overcoming all along the way. They are a beautiful example of resiliency, and we are thankful they have shared their journey with us!
