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.

I have only volunteered for one event with GP2Cure, but after my experience, I cannot wait for next year! I had no idea what type of impact this event was going to have on me....I was welcomed with open arms and really made a part of the GP2Cure family. I have never been so honored to be a part of something that I didn't know that much about previously. Every person I encountered during that event was incredible. The Brooks family has become such a role model for me in regards to how I want to raise my family. Their family and friends are a tribute to what amazing people they are. I sincerely appreciate them allowing me to be a part of something so special.

I have volunteered for several years in the local GP2Cure fund raiser and am able to see the positive results that this organization does. I have also been the physical therapist for several little girls with this impairment and personally witness the wonderful connections that families have with this great organization. GP2C provides a lifeline for families that cannot be met by any one other than those who are experiencing the same challenges with their daughters.

I never heard of Rett Syndrome until I met this sweet girl, Laura. Her family and friends from her school love her so much that I wanted to be a part of raising awareness and fund for research. If you are looking for a non-profit charity organization to help, GP2C is perfect; it is filled with awesome volunteers with great energy!
