Scott and Bridget met in 1993 and were married in 2001. In September of 2003 we welcomed our first miracle, James. 16 months later we brought home our second miracle, Annie. And in October of 2006 our family was complete with miracle #3, Gracie. Rett syndrome entered our lives when Annie was diagnosed on May 19, 2006. This is the life of the MacDonald family as we juggle 3 small children and battle Rett Syndrome until Gods perfect time when we are cured.

April is Autism Awareness Month!

April is just around the corner which means Autism Awareness Month! The signature event of Girl Power 2 Cure is called Dress Up 2 Cure and our family has signed up as Team Annie this year for this awesome fundraiser!! The economy has been rough this year, especially here in Michigan but this year more than ever is when we need your help. Researchers are getting closer and closer to a cure for rett syndrome but we can't let that research slow down. Do you want to help us? There are countless ways of getting involved, as simple as a blog/facebook post, maybe an email out to friends? Maybe you want to get more involved - a casual day at your office? A Dress Up 2 Cure event at your childs school? Maybe you can save your change for the month of April and donate it to Team Annie! Maybe you could make a quick donation today! Help us in the fight to get our Annie back! One day soon she will be able to thank you herself, until that day our family is so grateful for your support!

If you are a Rett Syndrome family and want to join in the FUN and register your own team, check out our Dress Up 2 Cure site to learn more and sign up today! (In case you need more incentive...there will be some amazing prizes this year for participants and top fund raisers...YAY!!!!)
