GP2C has been a part of our life since my granddaughter's diagnosis in 2014. They have been an outstanding resource for family support and educational material/tools. My granddaughter (who is non-verbal) has advanced significantly with the help of GP2C-Rett University courses and direct interactions with Rett U instructors. GP2C-Rett University personnel have also been invaluable advocates in her educational curriculum, assisting our family with school/teacher interactions and establishing educational plans and approaches. The entire GP2C organization has embraced my granddaughter and our extended family, and we are deeply appreciative of the love and support they have shown! We have also been active participants in GP2C fundraising efforts, and hold in high regard all of the tireless staff and volunteers who strive daily to advance the mission of the organization in the fight against Rett Syndrome.

Our life changed dramatically after we learned of our little angel's diagnosis of Rett Syndrome. We frankly didn't know where or who to turn to in order to not only find comfort in a Rett community, but also find an avenue through which we could dedicate ourselves to finding a cure. GP2C has been all that and more! GP2C's laser focus on channeling as much charity as possible to funding key research efforts and their campaigns to educate and raise awareness of this horrible disease is extremely important to us. Thank you for doing what you do!!

I don't know what we'd do without all the amazing people at GP2C! I actually have a couple I call all the time! GP2C is the most awesome organization I've got to work with. They have been amazing when it comes to my niece, Quinn, who has Rett Syndrome, and I know that our family could never have planned and had such a successful fundraiser the past 2 years! Our 3rd Annual Racing For Rett is June 3rd of this year, and without the support of GP2C, I don't think we wouldn't gotten through the first one! I love every single of of the people that work at GP2C, and I'm so lucky to get to volunteer and help out when I can!
I truly believe that with GP2C we will find a CURE for Rett Syndrome!

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!!

The passion and commitment to Girl Power 2 Cure is inspiring and an incredible resource for families in helping to find support, guidance and ways to help achieve a cure. It's a way to empower all of us in helping to make a difference, in big and small ways, in the lives of those with Rhett Syndrome.

Everyone in this organization is amazing to work with. Their dedication, passion and drive to spread awareness and raise funds for research make me proud to be a volunteer with them.I was first introduced to Girl Power 2 Cure (GP2C) by a friend who has a daughter with Rett Syndrome. Since becoming involved with Girl Power 2 Cure I have been thoroughly impressed with what they do for girls with Rett Syndrome. Last year I ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon with Team GP2C and I will continually support, donate, volunteer in any way I can and charity run with them.

My daughter and I have enjoyed volunteering with GP2C for several years! We have helped with fundraisers, buttons for races and thank you cards. It has been a wonderful experience for us! The idea that a cure is in sight, is so profound! There is real progress all the time. We feel we are watching a miracle happen and that is worth every minute it takes to get there!

I am a loyal donor to Girl Power To Cure at the most basic level because I believe in the cause and support the organization's insatiable drive to support research that will find a cure.

But as a professional working in organizational development, I am most impressed by the way Girl Power 2 Cure has responded to the need to give Rett children powerful access to learning and experiences long held unattainable.
Girl Power 2 Cure stays on the cutting edge. This is what makes the charity unique and outstanding.

I had the opportunity to volunteer for a GP2C fund raiser, it was both informative and rewarding. This is the most amazing charity. I was blessed just to be a part of such awesome group of people. I was humbled to see how hard these girls work to accomplish all they can in a daily basis. I enjoyed every minute I gave to this event. I would encourage anyone who has the time to step out and give of themselves for such worthy cause. I will volunteer more.

GP2C is an awesome organization! My husband and I ran the Princess through GP2C and had the experience of a life time. This all started three years ago meeting Ingrid at the Expo for the Princess weekend. She grabbed my attention and told me about Rett Syndrome and what it does to little ones etc. This year we had the opportunity to run in honor of Lily. She and other girls we met touched our hearts. This coming year my husband and I will be running again for Rett Syndrome and Lily as well! #untilshecan

Girl Power 2 Cure is an amazing organization and has been a HUGE source of information, support and strength for me and my family. They really offer so much to help families: Rett Girl has a huge bank of resources for anything from nutrition to special needs equipment and Rett University has been an absolute saving grace for us since we homeschool our Rett daughter! With the help of Susan Norwell's videos we have been making huge strides in reading and writing! Girl Power even raises research funds for Rett! All of this wrapped in a bright, beautiful flower to symbolize hope! The cheerful and positive attitude Girl Power takes is definitely contagious!

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.

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!
