Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
40k is the equivalent of a marathon. It's a long way but training is going well and I'm looking forward to challenging myself for this worthy cause.
Please read on and consider making a donation.
Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that strikes little girls around the time of their first birthday and ends their parents' hopes and dreams for their future. It affects nearly every aspect of these girls' lives; taking away their ability to walk, talk and use their hands. Many girls have problems with breathing and eating. Many have seizures.
Research has shown that girls with Rett do not have brain damage. They know and understand much more than their bodies allow them to show - but they are locked in, trapped by a body that cannot obey signals from their brain. I can only imagine how hard it is for a parent to watch this happen to their child.
But there is hope for a cure and I want to help.
