We are walking in the Strollathon (virtually, here in San Francisco), Rettsyndrome.org’s signature fundraising and awareness event, to raise money for essential research of effective treatments and to find a cure for Rett syndrome. We are strolling with and for our Maya 'Papaya'. Maya was recently diagnosed with Rett and is ready to fight to find a cure!
Rett syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder occurring almost exclusively in females and becoming apparent after 6-18 months of early normal development. The resulting regression leads to lifelong impairments, including lost speech, seizures, scoliosis, irregular breathing patterns, and more than half of the children and women lose the ability to walk. Those diagnosed with Rett syndrome require maximum assistance with basic daily activities.
Your donation will help fund important research and family support.
Please join us (@4-5pm we will be walking in McLaren Park, gathering at University & Mansell Streets for a stroll down Mansell), walk 'with us' in your own neighborhood, or donate to our efforts to support Rettsyndrome.org in finding a cure!
