Challenge

Rett Syndrome research is critically underfunded compared to other disorders of its magnitude (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc) . 90% of research funding has to come from private donors.

Solution

The money that we raise will go towards screening over the counter drugs that are currently FDA approved for other uses, but will hopefully have positive effects on Rett Syndrome patients.

Long-Term Impact

Rett Syndrome is considered one of a few nerological disorders that has a strong chance for finding a cure b/c of the fact that researchers have uncovered the faulty gene, there is a great amount of hope that a cure will lead to a breakthru in Autism
