Our granddaughter Adah is a beautiful and sweet 7 years old girl. She was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome when she was almost 3 yrs old. She is very emotional, she communicates with the toby or IPad, she has limited hands use, she walks but her balance is not great...Sadly, Adah is much aware of her limitations and she often wishes to be like any other child that speaks, plays, runs and have a normal life.

Thus, family and friends. grant Adah's wish for a future without RETT by donating directly to the Rett Syndrome Research Trust in her name.
