I think it's wonderful that you are raising awareness for Rett Syndrome. Most people don't understand the full extent of this disorder, nor the challenges (especially apraxia) these girls must overcome to communicate, eat, walk, learn, etc. I tend to think that because of the high level of care these girls need, it is difficult for most parents to take their daughters (RS) out frequently, and not because they believe they should hide them in the closet. As my daughter (w/RS)grows, loses skills, & develops skeletal deformities, it has become more difficult to transport her so our outings are fewer, but still not non-existent. My daughter has taught me the true meaning of unconditional love and the strength and courage that come from it.

My heart goes out to the parents of these children. May the Lord give you the strength to care for these kids. Hopefully a cure or at least something to slow down this disorder will be discovered soon. If it wasn't for this article, I would have probably never have heard of this disorder. God bless you all!

I'm the auntie to Jazzy one of the girls featured in this story. I can't begin to tell what my niece and my sister go through every day. Lupe, I know my sister understands everything you are going through. She is with Jazzy 24/7. She sees her pains everyday. My niece communicates with those big beautiful eyes telling my sister what she needs.
We love her so dearly. We know her as our Angel.

I am attaching a website for PEPSI. Pepsi is currently running a Challenge. People submit their ideas and a grandmother of one of our RETT Girls has submitted a request for funding for RETT syndrome. If you all want to help us with the cause, please cast your votes at the link below. The top 2 ideas will receive $250,000 in research funding.
