Welcome to My Personal Page
I particpated in the Rett Ride Across America – a cycling event to raise awareness and funds for Rett syndrome. This cause is near to my heart and the money raised will fuel research toward effective treatments and a curefor Rett syndrome.
Rett syndrome is a rare neurological disorder which becomes apparent in infancy or early childhood. It occurs in 1 in 10,000births and primarily affects females, though it can occur in boys. The children develop normally for the first 6to18 months and then begin to regress – or lose acquired skills. Rett syndromecauses changes in the brain that lead to lifelong impairments, including inabilityto speak, seizures, scoliosis and breathing difficulties. More than half of those affected lose theability to walk. Most require maximum assistance with basic daily activities.
Your donation will help fund important researchand critical family support. This cause is very important to me and Iappreciate your help as we fight for a cure for Rett syndrome!
