Welcome to My Personal Rett Ride Across America Page
I am participating in the Rett Ride Across America – a cycling ride that will take place over the course of October 2019 from California to Florida. I will be supporting an incredible group of caring superhumans that I will be riding with from Biloxi to Pensacola (Yes, that’s a long bike ride). The money raised will allow essential research of effective treatments and a cure for Rett syndrome to continue.
Rett syndrome is a rare neurological disorder which becomes apparent in infancy or early childhood. It occurs in 1 in 10,000 births and primarily affects females, though it can occur in boys. The children develop normally for the first 6 to 18 months and then begin to regress – or lose acquired skills. Rett syndrome causes changes in the brain that lead to lifelong impairments, including inability to speak, seizures, scoliosis and breathing difficulties. More than half of those affected lose the ability to walk. Most require maximum assistance with basic daily activities.
Your donation will help fund important research and critical family support. This cause is very important to me and I am grateful for your support.
Please join me or donate to my efforts and support the Rett Cure Campaign.
