For those who may not have heard of Rett Syndrome here is a brief description of this syndrome and how it affects these Angels.
Rett Syndrome is a severe neurological disorder that primarily affects girls. Rett Syndrome is the most physically disabling of the autism spectrum disorders. Rett Syndrome is caused by a mutation in the gene MECP2 –a protein that regulates the expression of other genes by turning them off at the appropriate time. The mutation is spontaneous and the effects are seen in early childhood between 6 to 18 months of age. The disorder destroys speech, movement, and functional hand use. Many children lose the ability to walk, they struggle daily with severe seizures, scoliosis, breathing abnormalities, and often the child becomes dependent on others for a lifetime of care. These children's normal life expectancy is to the age of 14 to 17.
