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!

What a fabulous organization! The people who work to make Girl Power 2 Cure what it is are wonderful! I have been working with Amei, Kevin and Jason to plan an event with Girl Power 2 Cure, I cannot tell you how accommodating they have been to make sure everything goes well. Girl Power 2 Cure will always be a charitable organization that I support. Their mission is wonderful and so many people need to hear their message to help kids with Rett's Syndrome.

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.

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.
