On February 24, 2013 I will be running with the Girl Power 2 Cure Team at the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
There are just a handful of disorders that predominantly affect females. Breast cancer is the most prevalent. Rett Syndrome is just as devastating, and affects a potential one in 5,000 girls.
Condemned to an entire lifetime of struggles, these girls have been robbed of their ability to speak, walk, crawl, use their hands. They depend on others for every part of their day. Complications include seizures, sudden death in their sleep and scoliosis.
Madison's friend, Anna Cate, suffers from many complications associated with Rett Syndrome. She does, however, show her friends what laughter, love and determination can accomplish - I will be running in February 2013 to raise awareness for Anna Cate's daily struggles and to raise funds to help find a cure for Rett Syndrome.
