Support for continuing work at the Tri-State Rett Syndrome Center in the Bronx, NY with the majority of the funds raised through the annual Reverse Rett NYC event.

Monica Coenraads, RSRT’s Executive Director, said: “Our approach to funding research is somewhat different from that of more traditional research organizations.

As parents of daughters with Rett Syndrome, we don’t have a moment to lose.”
