Girl Power 2 Cure works tirelessly to help the young girls affected and their families. I have had the honor of participating in their events and each person I've met as a part of this wonderful organization has spoken from the heart. They are hard working, caring and determined individuals who make up this fantastic organization. Thank you Girl Power 2 Cure for all you do and all you have accomplished!

GP2C is an amazing organization that does so much for our Rett community! I am a sibling of a woman with Rett syndrome who is 50 years old. GP2C has been so supportive to us and allowed me to find other families and siblings to share with. They are amazing, helpful and passionate!! GP2C is the best!!

My son and I worked with GP2C to raise money and awareness for Rett syndrome through a hike this past year. The GP2C staff was wonderful to work with and they are truly providing a fantastic service to the Rett community!

We love GP2C! Our Julie Grace, almost 5 yo, has Rett Syndrome. Girl Power 2 Cure has been such a lifeline for support! It has also been such a great resource in recruiting support for awareness and fundraising activities. Our local schools and community geared up to support a local father and son, Hemry and Bemnett Fisher. that hiked the entire Appalachian Trail through for the 2015 Hike for Julie with donations benefitting GP2C and the Suki Foundation. So blessed to be a part of the GP2C community!

To be completely candid, I am a parent of a girl with Rett Syndrome. We were lucky to discover it in 2006, shortly after its founding. What appealed to us most was the total commitment to finding a cure, by funneling its resources to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust. As the years have gone by, the obvious needs for family support, educational resources, and a myriad other concerns of families with Rett Syndrome became quite apparent, and GP2C has begun to diversify the application of its donations to great effect. The most exciting development to come out of this is the partnership with Susan Norwell - quite likely the world's foremost authority on literacy and communication as it applies to Rett Syndrome - and the development of Rett University. All of the people at GP2C are wonderful - caring, helpful, insightful, involved and aware. I can't think of another charity I would ever support more than Girl Power 2 Cure.

I am a college student who was looking for somewhere to volunteer some time during my summer spent back at home. I found GP2C online when looking for organizations that promoted female health. I could not have asked for a better volunteer experience or opportunity. The women of GP2C were so welcoming and friendly. They are all so passionate about giving back to the Rett community and making each Rett girl feel special. Their dedication to raising funds and awareness of Rett Syndrome is admirable. I learned so much about Rett Syndrome and how valuable just my time was to them. I really appreciate all they do and thank them for the amazing experience they have given me!

Bailey, Thank you for the wonderful review. We really love being able to educate people that are not in the Rett Community about all the amazing girls, families and hope there is for a cure. Thank you for all your help this summer and we hope to see you again when you have a break from school.

Girl Power 2 Cure is a fantastic organization helping families and girls with Rett Syndrome. My daughter Quinn has Rett Syndrome and they offer support and numerous events throughout the year to get family, friends and supporters involved in raising awareness about this nuerological disease and funds for research.
Thank you so much for your devotion and support for Quinn and my entire family.

Our Daughter was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome in 2005, We were devastated. We felt alone, scared and helpless. The future we once envisioned for our little girl was replaced with emotional and physical challenges we did not understand nor could we comprehend. Then by some miracle I met Ingrid Harding the founder of Girl Power 2 Cure. She helped me to understand and decipher the maze of Rett Syndrome. For the first time after the diagnosis I had Hope. Hope for my daughter and Hope for my family. Girl Power 2 Cure is simply AMAZING! This organization works tirelessly to provide support to the families and friends of our girls. GP2C spreads awareness, offers invaluable resources, funds critical research, and provides a place of acceptance and understanding. We are in this journey together, fighting for our girls, with Girl Power we will succeed!

I have an older daughter with Rett Syndrome so I have worked with many different organizations over the years. There is something very special about Girl Power 2 Cure, Inc. Not only are they working hard to help all of the new families that are struggling with a diagnosis of Rett Syndrome, but they are constantly looking for new ways to help the families that have been dealing with Rett for years and need new, fresh ideas and things to try with their girls. The organization works hard to raise huge amounts of money for research, but they also make sure that parents have the support and friendship that is crucial to all families that live with Rett Syndrome. No matter what your interests, passions, or needs, Girl Power 2 Cure is available to help. You won't find another nonprofit organization like them. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, sibling, or just looking for an amazing nonprofit to be a part of, welcome to an amazing group of people!

GP2C is a place where parents, grandparents, siblings, and caregivers can go for support, hope, and help. Getting a dignosis of Rett Syndrome is a heart-breaking time in a family's life. I remember being filled with grief and despair when I first heard the words Rett Syndrome. Being able to connect with others who have been where you are, who understand what you are feeling, is more important than anything else. The hope and support you receive at GP2C is what makes parents realize that Rett Syndrome can be beat! My questions were answered. I was able to get tools to spread awareness. I could even set up a page to teach others about Rett Syndrome and help raise money to allow researchers to continue their battle to find a cure. No matter where you are on your Rett journey... GP2C has something for you.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
