Our daughter was diagnosed with Rett syndrome in 2009 and we found GP2C a few years later. We became part of GP2C in 2015 and we loved the support it offers families. We know that if we ever need someone to talk to GP2C will be there for us or will help us connect with a local family for support. Thank you GP2C for making our rett world a better place

We have twin daughters diagnosed with Rett syndrome, and we’ve always appreciated the support and the mission of Girl Power 2 Cure. Our family recently hosted a Kendra Scott Give Back Event to benefit Girl Power 2 Cure, and it was absolutely wonderful. GP2C connected us for a planning conversation with our local Kendra Scott event manager, and from there everything about the event was simple and seamless. The event manager and GP2C created social media posts to share for our event, and our local Kendra Scott store themed the event in honor of our twin daughters’ 6th birthday. They even provided adorable custom made cookies, beverages, and party decor. The best part of the event was that 20% of all sales were donated to GP2C, and we were able to raise $1000 just by inviting friends and family to shop and celebrate with us! It was a beautiful event, and everyone enjoyed having the opportunity to support Girl Power 2 Cure while celebrating our daughters. I highly recommend connecting with GP2C and your local Kendra Scott store to host a Give Back Event. It’s a fantastic and simple way to get involved with fundraising to help bring hope and to support finding a cure for everyone diagnosed and affected by Rett syndrome. Our hearts are full, and we are so thankful for everyone that was a part of making this event such an awesome success.

I have nothing but great things to say about Girl Power 2 Cure. They helped my husband and I put on our event "Evening of Hope for Rett syndrome", for our daughter Evelyn, back in April, and they were there with us every step of the way. They walked us through all of the details we should think about and were willing to help us in any way they could. They helped us with all of the "tedious" back end items so that we could focus on other things. They didn't just say they would support and then wait in the wings some of their staff actually showed up to our event and were a tremendous help. They were a support for our family in making our event such a great success. Love this organization!

I have volunteered for Girl Power 2 Cure for 5 years. It has given me valuable experience to help me qualify for college scholarships. It has been a great experience to learn about Rett Syndrome and meet so many of the children battling each day. I have also signed up to run in the 2020 Disney Princess 5K. It was an easy process to register and the support has been great! I would highly recommend Girl Power 2 Cure if you are looking for a great non-profit to support!

After my friend passed away I wanted to hold a fundraiser in her memory (she had Rett Syndrome). I knew I wanted to donate the proceeds to an organization that included raising awareness (and presuming competence) and that offered lots of family support. I heard of GP2C via a blog post and took a closer look. GP2C is exactly what I was looking for!

They have been incredibly supportive not only of our annual event (I always hear back quickly when I call, message or email) but also of me personally as I've gone thru the process of grieving the loss of someone so important to me.

You can tell that they really care and are dedicated to this changing the lives of those with Rett Syndrome from research, to family supports, and educating professionals and the public about what these girls & boys are really capable of. I have been blown away by the professionalism and level of care that goes into their organization .

I am so grateful to be a part of and have such a wonderful community to direct local Rett families to!

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

We love Girl Power 2 Cure and all that they do to raise awareness, support families, and most importantly their dedication to their mission to end Rett syndrome. I am a mom of 4 year old twins with Rett, and very active in fundraising. We recently had a Lemonade Stand fundraiser at our local music festival to support GP2C. The support we received from the staff at GP2C was phenomenal and made me feel so good about supporting the organization. In the end, between shirt sales, online donations, and the actual lemonade stand event we raised just over $3000! I feel so wonderful about our success, and I know that our donations are being well used to support GP2C, Rett University, and towards research that will eventually lead to a CURE for all of our children battling Rett. If you need a fantastic charitable organization to support, GP2C is definitely the best for many reasons.

I'm currently the board chair for this fabulous non-profit organization and have served on its board for almost 7 years. When I first met the founder I had never heard of Rett Syndrome, yet the story of these girls (mostly) and the syndrome's impact on their lives and that of their families touched my heart. The "girl power" part of it was put to the test when I told my then 6-year old daughter about why I was volunteering with this group and what they did. She brought me her piggy bank and dumped it on the floor and said "Mommy I want you to give this money to those girls!". THAT's girl power, the nurturing nature of all girls to empower and want to help their own. PRICELESS!

GP2C has been a part of our "Rett Syndrome Family" since my granddaughter's diagnosis in 2014. They have been a compassionate resource for family support and educational material/tools. My granddaughter 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 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 the tireless staff and volunteers who strive daily to advance the mission of the organization in the fight against Rett Syndrome.

Girl Power 2 Cure has been an important part of the life of our family since our daughter's Rett Syndrome diagnosis several years ago. GP2C provides vital resources and support services to help families as they navigate through their unpredictable and often difficult journey with Rett. Additionally, through their contributions to research and incredible Rett University programs, Girl Power 2 Cure provides parents hope that our Rett children will live fulfilling lives in the near-term and that a cure is on the horizon. GP2C is an extremely well run charity focused on ensuring that every dollar donated goes to supporting families, funding research or raising awareness.

I learned about GP2C because my best friend since grade school days has a daughter with Rett Syndrome. Their daughter is amazing and beautiful, but impacted by a debilitating syndrome that takes away almost all of her freedom. She can't walk, eat on her own, talk any longer, and has some typical physical ailments.

I learned about GP2C and how they're having such great impact on the Rett community. They're doing wonderful work in terms of family support and raising awareness. Great positive events are sponsored that give Rett families the opportunity to participate with their Rett girls, meet other families, and share information that's useful for living high quality lives with Rett Syndrome.

Finally, the money raised by GP2C also goes to directly fund research to help in the overall fight against Rett to find a cure and treatments. The amazing thing is that this syndrome has shown promise to actually be reversible, which is stunning. GP2C is a positive force in the Rett community and I'm happy to support them in any way I can.

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!!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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 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.

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!

I had a great time, and saw many friends. I won several items at the silent auction, including a baby quilt. I gave it to a friend who is having her first baby and she loved it!

The mission of GP2C to raise awareness of and support families with girls afflicted with Rett Syndrome is carried out by Ingrid Harding and her dedicated team. I recently had the opportunity to work with this amazing group when co-chairing a charity golf torunament to raise funds for this worthy cause. I was impressed by the professionalism, vigor, and unwavering passion of the GP2C organization as they facilitated the tournament to fulfill our common goals of raising awareness, support, and funding for Rett Syndrome. GP2C is a truly inspiring non-profit to work with and support.

The Newcomers Ladies Golf Club of Amelia Island recently hosted a charity golf tournament to help raise funds for GP2C. Our Golf Club worked hard to obtain sponsors, donors and a field of golfers. However, preparing for this event would have been so much harder without the guidance and support of the Girl Power 2 Cure staff of Ingrid Harding, Jen Stallings and Claudia. These ladies are totally dedicated to the Girl Power 2 Cure Family. You can see it by the smiles on their faces each time we would sign up another sponsor, donor or golfer. I am personally proud to say I am a true believer of the organization and their continuous efforts to find a cure for Rett Syndrome and help the families and their daughters dealing with the challenges Retts brings to their everyday lives.
I thank God everyday for connecting me with Girl Power 2 Cure. Sometimes there are charitable organizations, which are not so trustworthy. But Girl Power 2 Cure is not one of those organizations. Feel confident your generosity is used to benefit Rett Girls in every way possible.

GP2C helps raise awareness, connect families, answer questions, and provides overall support to help families receiving a Rett Syndrome diagnosis learn to cope with what the future holds. This organization and the people who make it up are AMAZING individuals and the work they do is absolutely priceless. I'm forever grateful that GP2C exists.....our family would be lost without them!

GP2C doesn't feel like an "organization"; it feels like a family. This isn't an organization that is all about just adding another member or another $ sign. Girls with Rett Syndrome are the heart and soul. GP2C works tirelessly to fund research for a cure, but I once heard founder, Ingrid Harding, say that one of her fears is that a cure will be found, but there will still be girls out there undiagnosed. This "family" does what they can to spread awareness about Rett Syndrome so that won't happen.

I am a GP2C family member because my daughter has Rett Syndrome. This is where I turn when I need medical and/or therapy advice, information on new research, or I just need someone to say, "I get it. I've been there, too."

The last few years have given me an new insight and appreciation for having a healthy daughter. My best friend's daughter was diagnosed with Rett and the journey has been nothing short of life changing. I've watched GP2C generate hope where Rett robbed them and create spark where a fire had been extinguished. GP2C pulls families out of a lonely dark place and provides them with a circle of friends and family that they can depend of for strength. Most importantly they have shown appreciation for every dollar they earned and put those dollars directly to research. Nothing feels better than to give and know what's given is being appropriated honestly. In addition, the mission to educate the public through creative resources has been amazing. Keep up the great work!

GP2C is always up to date with all the current studies. I love that they share stories about all of our Rett girls. Having that connection with each other helps us all underdstand Rett syndrome a little better. I also like how they share volunteer ideas. My niece has Rett & we are determined to find a cure & help all the little girls out there. I can't wait for the day for my sister, brother-n-law & nephew to hear the words "I love you" to be spoke of from her. Every parent & sibling longs to hear those words from our Rett girls. The more we can spread the word about this syndrome the faster a cure will be found. WE CAN DO THIS! Never give up on our girls :-)

I absolutely love GP2C. I have a daughter, age 8, who has Rett Syndrome. The journey has been heartbreaking, but with a group such as GP2C you have encouragement and hope. The non-profit organization encumbers the most amazing supporters who are caring, loving, compassionate individuals that truly get you. I am honored to be a part of such an incredible organization. We have the same goal- We have the same mission! Together we can make a difference. Believe in the power to cure Rett Syndrome!

My daughter has Rett Syndrome and after the initial shock of the diagnosis I found Girl Power 2 Cure. They have helped me in so many ways with support and resources. Through this organization I have met so many wonderful moms, dads, siblings and friends of girls just like mine and they have become my friends. I don't think I could have gotten through the last 2 years without them!

I had never heard about Rett Syndrome until my son came home one day his freshman year at highschool. He told me about Laura,one his band director's daughter with Rett Syndrome. He because involve and when I saw how excited he was about helping I became involved also. I make cake pops for the Rocking for Rett event Tina holds every year. Last year I also made a mosaic tile plaque for the silent auction. I will be there again this year with my cake pops and another mosaic tile plaque.
Tina is such an inspiration. I admire her so much. Girl Power 2 Cure has been such a resource for their entire family. I am so glad there is such a great organization to help the families that have be affected with Rett Syndrome.

In February 2013, our two year old daughter was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Girl Power 2 Cure (GP2C), their staff, members, and supporters, have become a beacon of light for me and my family. They bring an air of excitement, youthfulness, and fun to a very serious diagnosis. As a volunteer, I found something to throw all my energy behind and know that everything I do with GP2C is going to help find a cure for Rett Syndrome and help the next family that receives a diagnosis of Rett Syndrome. As a parent of a daughter with Rett, I found an organization committed to my daughter and to us. I volunteer as often as possible, arriving at their office full of excitement and leaving rejuvenated. GP2C is very dedicated, inspiring, motivated, and creative in their approach to fund raising and awareness. It is no surprise that they are rapidly growing. I'm thankful and proud to be a part of GP2C.
