Emma Foley is a smart, delightful, funny, and courageous 13 year old girl with Rett Syndrome who awaits your help. Emma was born normally and developed like every other infant until she was about a year old. Then the cruelty of Rett Syndrome began, and EmmaÂ’s skills were stolen from her. She was propelled into a body that didn't listen to her-hands that no longer picked things up, a voice that no longer could speak. Emma went from a toddler on the verge of independence to a child completely dependent on others for every aspect of her daily life. But Emma is remarkable, and she never gives up. She has learned to walk, talk with her eyes, read and be the best big sister anyone could ask for. Her courage and perseverance are contagious and amazing.
We have cured Rett Syndrome in mice, now help me make it a reality in our girls!
