While she may not know how to reverse childhood obesity, close the gap of income and nutrition, or how to help a little girl get her body to listen to her so she doesn't pull out her hair, Ali is committed to sharing in this moment and doing whatever she can one minute at a time.

We are committed to making Rett Syndrome the first reversible neurological disorder by harnessing the spirit of girls to support fellow girls who are suffering. We support girls in the planning and implementation of events that raise awareness and funds for Rett Syndrome research, as well as support Rett families with resources, fundraising help and awareness tools.
Our inspiration is our flower: always in bloom with hope and positive energy, ready to grow anywhere there is someone ready to join in our mission.
