Annie's friend Rachel (beautiful Rett girl) came out for the evening and the pair were like little celebrities!
Barnes and Nobel was packed it seemed that everyone in the bookstore knew Annie. Every person we passed by said Hi to her and wanted to stop to talk, introduce themselves and get a picture with our little angel. The kids were so excited to tell us about what they had learned about Rett Syndrome and as one boy put it "We just really need to cure this". Yep, couldn't have said it better myself!
|The Girl Power Flower was EVERYWHERE! Even on this cow!|
|And Yes, a Girl Power cake too!|
I honestly can't thank Mr. Dalton and all of his 8th graders for going above and beyond for Annie and for Rett Syndrome. Annie was so excited at the event she was completely worn out when we left:
If you missed the event but still want to help there are a few days left to buy books online and have the proceeds benefit Girl Power 2 Cure - just type in the Book Fair code below.
