Disney Bloghop for Rett Syndrome Awareness - Day 1

Welcome to the First Annual Blog Hop for Rett Syndrome Awareness

Your first stop should have been at Robin Lane's Blog, if you did not start there please go back to the beginning...

What is Rett Syndrome? Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurologic developmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls. It is usually caused by a mutation of the MECP2 gene on the X chromosome. Rett Syndrome is found in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world, and in every socioeconomic class. Rett Syndrome affects 1 in 15,000 female births.

Early developmental milestones appear normal, but between 6-18 months of age, there is a delay or regression in development, particularly affecting speech, hand skills and coordination. A hallmark of Rett Syndrome is the repetitive hand movements that may include seizures, irregular breathing, swallowing difficulties, and curvature of the spine.  There is currently no cure, but many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood.

For this blog hop I made 4 cards. 

Each card has a different character,

heart brads,

and some ribbon

holding a tag with the sentiment.

Each one will have encouraging words inside and will be donated to 'Project Sunshine & Smiles,' an organization that sends cards to children in hospitals.  You can donate to them too.

Plus, there's this from Robin:
