Reviews for Girl Power 2 Cure Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

My daughter was planning an Art Auction and sell those drawings to benefit a non-profit. After attending Golf for a Cure and meeting a beautiful girl and her sister. She chose GP2C as the organization her Art Auction would benefit. After careful planning for several months, we finally focused on getting people to the event. We contacted GP2C and they gave us so many tools to help our event. We also had some very Special Rett girls and their families come to our event, It was amazing! We were very happy with the outcome, we raised awareness and some money. This has also left plenty of motivation in my daughter to do this all over again!

Girl Power 2 Cure is amazing! The ladies we worked with, Amei & LeNora, went above and beyond any amount of help that I have ever experienced before with anything. If I had a random question, one of them was always responding to my emails, texts, or voicemails SO FAST! I LOVED working with this nonprofit and am super excited about our 5K next year!!

Worked with GP2C while running the #Ragnar4Rett with the other ladies from #TeamSparkle. They are AWESOMESAUCE! The money that goes towards Rett Research is extremely valuable and I am honored to have been a part of something so much bigger than myself!

Great organization. Not only raising money for a cure but also helping families connect so they have support through diagnosis and treatment.

When we recieved the diagnosis of Rett Syndrome for our daughter we had a very rough time with it. We couldn't imagine how we would be able to move on, knowing what our future held. Finding Girl Power 2 Cure was what pulled our family out of depression and into fight mode. Girl Power taught us that we didn't have to take this diagnosis lying down. Their support and friendship was invaluable during this difficult time. They gave us a purpose again and light at the end of the tunnel. They educated us on the research going on and gave us advice for things we were going through. This organization helps so many people on so many levels. Not only is is spreading awareness and funding critical research, it is teaching families how to move forward in a positive way! Thank you Girl Power 2 Cure!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

I am a Mom to a girl, Hailey, age 9 who has Rett Syndrome. I recently held my first fundraiser for GP2C at Texas Roadhouse. I was so excited for this event and to spread awareness. GP2C provided me with all the information I needed to make this event a success. They also encouraged me and made me feel welcome. We were fortunate to meet other Rett families that traveled to help us raise awareness. We have been welcomed into the "Rett family" . Thank you to GP2C for all of the help you provided and I look forward to working with you again on my next of many fundraisers!

This organization has gone above and beyond what I ever expected an organization to do. It has helped my daughter and my family in so many ways. They are always promoting events and making us feel included and in the loop with events and allowing us to participate in them. So grateful for Girl Power 2 Cure and the blessing it has been in our lives.

I have a personal interest in GP2C as my granddaughter has the same syndrome that sweet Laura has. I'm very impressed with how supportive they are. Also, it's extremely important to bring families together who have something in common. Even if that something happens to be Rett Syndrome.

I recently worked with GP2C for a fundraising event in memory of a dear friend of mine. They were beyond supportive both logistically as well as offering moral support and encouragement. I specifically chose the GP2C organization because of the type of family support they offer to those with Rett Syndrome and they did not disappoint. They were in touch with me leading up to and as well as after the event and we are hoping to make it an annual fundraiser for this amazing organization! THANKS GP2C! You made what could have been a very difficult day of mourning for us something healing and positive. Much LOVE
