Our New Space!

Eight years ago, when Sarah was 4, I sketched out the GP2C flower and started to build Girl Power 2 Cure in my mind. Since then, we have brought together an amazing team of over 30 people, all working virtually. It has always been a dream to have office space and start to build a physical base - a place for people to come to work, learn and volunteer.

Last summer I started more seriously thinking about this step and started to dream out loud with my 10-year-old daughter Gretchen every time we went by a place that was for lease.

When I signed the lease and brought her over to see, she said, "Mom! Dreams really do come true! Remember when you thought it would never happen? It happened!"

It happened because of our amazing supporters, our forward-thinking Board of Directors, and a plethora of volunteers waiting to come and help.

If you build it, they will come - right?

Here is a tour of our Field of Dreams - or in our case, GARDEN OF DREAMS!  We will keep sharing photos and stories as we make the place our own and have the impact we are excited to have in the Rett Syndrome community.

I cannot even imagine how B-I-G your dreams can get in the space. Awed, as always.
