Review for GIRL POWER 2 CURE INC, Amelia Island, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This past summer, I was given the opportunity to work as an intern for Girl Power 2 Cure. In short, Girl Power 2 Cure raises awareness, support, and research funds in an effort to fight Rett Syndrome, which is a debilitating neurobiological disorder that mainly affects females. I loved working for them, to say the least. Not only did I get to meet wonderful people like Ingrid Harding and Cynthia Colalillo, but I was truly a part of something bigger than myself. Before coming in contact with this organization, I was not aware of the devastating effects of Rett Syndrome. I hurt for the girls who experience this and for their families. The work that Girl Power 2 Cure does to empower and aid these girls and their families is INVALUABLE! They are bringing a community together where before rett families were scattered and information on how to care for rett girls was even more scattered. I am very excited to see where Girl Power 2 Cure goes in the future - especially with their proposed program Rett University, which would revolutionize how rett girls and their care teams are taught and connect.
