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.

Quest for a Cure is here again!

Hi Friends!  I'd like to extend an invitation to all of you to our second annual Quest for a Cure 1K walk and family fun day at Inglenook Park in Southfield!  The day will consist of a short walk and then lots of fun for the kids with face painting, balloon animals, pumpkin painting and TONS of food, then some great raffles and prizes for the adults.  There is NO FEE for coming out for the day, bring all the kids and show your support with a donation of any size. 

As most of you know, Annie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome at just 16 months old.  We watched in agony as it took away her ability to stand, crawl, walk, speak and feed herself.  It was devastating.  Our beautiful, smart little girl became trapped inside her body.
However, there is now HOPE!  Researchers have proven that Rett is REVERSABLE!  It is poised to be the FIRST childhood neurological disease to be CURED!
You can help make this a reality!  Join us for a 1K walk and family fun day as we raise money for research that will one day cure Annie and hundreds of thousands of girls and women worldwide who are suffering daily with Rett Syndrome.
We hope we can count on you to help us in our fight to rescue our daughter from this horrible disease.
If you are unable to attend but would like to support our efforts, donations can be made in Annie's honor online:  
Thank you, thank you for your continued support of our Annie and our family.  Stay tuned to this blog for excited research updates which are sure to be forthcoming and of course updates on our champion, Annie!  Your love, support and generosity mean more to us than we could ever express!
