Reverse Rett

We fund cutting edge research to reverse Rett Syndrome for good

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We are trying to raise funds for research into Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurological disorder which affects mainly girls: imagine the symptoms of autism, cerebral palsy, Parkinson's, epilepsy, and anxiety disorders all combined in one girl. Unlike many other conditions, there is hope for Rett. Scientists have re-created Rett in mice and been able to treat it genetically. To try this on humans will cost money and take time. Neither is available. Because Rett is a rare disease, there is little money from governments or drug companies.  The Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK has the single aim of raising and disseminating funds to support this research.
