Each month, The Modified Dolls and our Official Chapters support a different 501(c)(3) organization through fundraising, voluntarism, and raising awareness. All of August, we are supporting Girl Power 2 Cure.
Girl Power 2 Cure has been helping girls and families affected by Rett Syndrome since 2006. Rett Syndrome is a debilitating neurological disorder that primarily affects girls. It is caused by a single gene mutation that leads to underproduction of an important brain protein and is as prevalent as Cystic Fibrosis, ALS and Huntington’s. Baby girls are born “normal” but begin to lose acquired skills between the ages of 1-3 years old. Rett Syndrome is a potentially reversible disorder. Today there is no cure, but Rett Syndrome is curable.
Girl Power 2 Cure raises awareness for Rett Syndrome, supports families affected by Rett Syndrome, and funds research on Rett Syndrome. Read more about how Girl Power 2 Cure assists with finding a cure for Rett Syndrome here.
You can help raise awareness and funds for Rett Syndrome by visiting Girl Power 2 Cure’s website and checking out their ideas for spreading the word or by making a donation. Visit our social media links in the sidebar to see how The Modified Dolls is assisting Girl Power 2 Cure throughout the month.
