Top Three Reasons Why You Should Donate to the Rocky Mountain Rett Association
#1: To keep the Rett Clinic at the Children’s Hospital available to all patients throughout the area
The Rett Clinic received a Center of Excellence dedication in 2017 and we are incredibly proud of having a very unique set up at our clinic. It not only combines consultation and treatment in one convenient place with up to 15 top-notch Rett specialists, but also is involved in research and trials. Dr. Benke, the Clinic Director, is convinced that the cure will happen thanks to all the efforts at the local clinics. Thanks to your generous donations in 2016 and 2017, we were able to start offering follow-up clinics. But the wait list is still long and it’s our goal to offer this clinic to more patients.
Please donate to keep the Rett Clinic open for the future and offer it to more children!
#2: To increase awareness for this debilitating disease so that more funds are raised
Most people have never heard of Rett Syndrome until it rules their world. Yes, Rett Syndrome is a rare disease, but it is devastating to so many families and it doesn’t receive the amount of private and public research funding like other, even lesser occurring diseases.
Spread the word and let’s raise awareness together!
#3: To support research for a cure
Studies in the lab are very promising and researchers succeeded in reversing this disease in mice. It might be the first curable brain disorder and will have implications on other neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer, Parkinson and Autism! By donating you are supporting Rett research at the local Rett Clinic at Children’s Hospital and on a national level.
Scientists are very confident, so let’s give them the funds needed!
Together, we can make Rett Syndrome history!
