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.

We have a daughter with Rett Syndrome and I can't say enough how much it meant to our family to find this organization. Finding Girl Power 2 Cure has given us purpose. We are motivated to work with them and raise money to find a cure for our amazing daughters!

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!

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

I heard about Ingrid Harding and Girl Power 2 Cure through her uncle in Merritt Island, Florida. When I went to the GP2C website, I was amazed at how much this organization had accomplished. Ingrid is a mother who, after having a daughter with Rett Syndrome, went on a mission to help others. She is a fantastic role model for people who want to make a difference. I asked Ingrid to speak at Epsilon Sigma Alpha's (ESA) leadership meeting in October, 2013, and she was so inspiring that ESA has had fundraisers around the state to help raise awareness of Rett Syndrome and fund research. My ESA Chapter, Nu Alpha, recently had a fashion show fundraiser at Dillard's in Merritt Island and it was very successful. Many people came up to me, after hearing about Rett Syndrome, and told me they had no idea what Rett Syndrome was and they were happy to be able to contribute to this worthy cause. ESA will continue to support GP2C, and we pray that a cure will be available soon.

This was my first year assisting Kelly and her family in the fundraiser. I was and still am very excited to help. A little background on why. My son was in Brooklyn's classroom last year. They became great friends as well as I did with the teacher, Brooklyn's aunt. As we begun to draw closer the family who would come in and assist Brooklyn would explain Rhett, and what it does to the body. They have so much passion and conviction for what they do that it drew me in. I too wanted to play my part. So, I asked local business for donations and to hang posters. The night of the event drew closer and I didn't know what to expect so I got to to the venue early. There the family was setting up tables and running all over the place, it was chaos, however it was organized. I asked where I could help, as the night wore on I was overwhelmed by all the love and support of the community. In my eyes it was a huge success and I look forward to participating next year at the same level of compactity or more.

Joyful is how I would describe GP2C. Having worked in the not-for-profit arena for over 8 years, I have been so very impressed with the spirit of joy that permeates GP2C in every aspect of their organization, from special events, to their vision for our girls and the supportive way they look out for each other. Seeking a cure is important; but so is supporting the families that are finding their way through this new world they have found themselves in. Ingrid has grown a family of support and her staff shares her vision. As a grandmother of a Rett girl, my appreciation for what they do and how they do it is boundless. GP2C has made our lives better and allowed us to pass that on to others.

I am looking forward to many more special events where I can help educate and spread awareness of Rett Syndrome and - of course, raise money for a cure.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Wish for more of what they already do so well.
