Welcome to Brian's Page for #AdventureswithBug
I am participating in the Rett Ride Across America – a cycling event to raise awareness and funds for Rett syndrome. Peyton (Bug) was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome in September 2018. Rett Syndrome has not stopped her personality from shining through, from her infectious smile to her adorable belly laugh she is always the center of attention and loves it. In Peyton's short life nothing physically has come easy for her. I have decided to challenge myself physically by riding 100 miles in the Virtual Rett Ride Across America.
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 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 appreciate your help as we fight for a cure for Rett syndrome!
Please join me or donate to my efforts to support Rettsyndrome.org in finding a cure!
