ABOUT REVERSE RETT
Reverse Rett works to speed treatments and a cure for Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders by funding research that will have a practical and positive impact on our children’s lives.
They fund research from basic science to clinical trials and work to facilitate the translation of this work into clinical applications for people with Rett Syndrome and related MECP2 disorders.
Since inception in 2010, they’ve delivered over $5 million of the funds raised to the research projects.
ABOUT RETT SYNDROME
Rett syndrome is a neurological condition which most often strikes previously healthy little girls between their first and second birthday and leaves them with multiple disabilities and medical complexities for life.
Most people with Rett are unable to speak, walk or use their hands. Breathing problems, feeding tubes, seizures, anxiety, gastrointestinal and orthopedic issues are common.
Research has shown that girls with Rett do not have brain damage. They know and understand much more than their bodies allow them to show – but they are locked in, trapped by a body that cannot obey signals from their brain.
Archerfield Walled Garden has supported Reverse Rett as its chosen charity for the past 2 years and have helped them raise over £25,000.
