Story image 1_0

October is Rett Syndrome awareness month. Rett Syndrome is a very rare, non-inherited genetic disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls. It generally sets in between 6 and 18 months of age, and usually, family members don’t see it coming. People who live with Rett Syndrome are presented with many challenges that make daily life difficult. Signs and symptoms include losing the ability to walk and talk, and difficulty eating and breathing. This devastating disorder only affects about 1 in every 10,000 girls worldwide.
