Springtime for Rett!

Flowers are blooming all across the country for our Rett Girls! Check out our Garden of Hope project! In Tennessee, flowers are blooming at 30 different Fifth Third bank branches....they are blooming in Indiana, California, Michigan, Maryland, Arizona, Texas, Ohio, New Jersey. Oklahoma, Kentucky... and have even crossed the border in Canada! Join in the "planting!" - it is easy and fun! Tip to get lots of stores to host a garden in one "stop": attend your local chamber of commerce / business association meeting and ask that they all participate. They can pick a week or a month that is convenient for them. We mail you the flowers and provide an online kit. Visit

MAY 15th DEADLINE FOR OUR PRIZE CAMPAIGN - And remember, for each Rett family who starts a team web page for Girl Power 2 Cure's Spring Campaign ( there are incentive prizes! For each $100 raised for your team, you get an entry into the raffle for these incredible prizes with a total value of $15,000 (Sleep Safe Bed, Family Vacation, Up 'N Go Walker).

Check out this great product I just listed for Spring at! It is a special needs "wagon" that attaches to a bicycle -- and doubles as a stroller. It's a WIKE! Check it out!
