REVERSE RETT LA, THE LOS ANGELES CHAPTER OF THE RETT SYNDROME RESEARCH TRUST will host its 8th annual gala that will be co-chaired by three families—Stephanie & Andy Bohn, Heidi & Jonathan Epstein, and Marci & Rudy Valner—that have daughters that struggle with Rett Syndrome. Supporters and attendees of this prominent charity event include entertainment lawyers, production and studio executives, community and business leaders and more. For a complete list of event participants please visit: http://reverserett.org/take-action/events/reverse-rett-la/.
Now in its 8th year, the event last year alone raised $900,000 in support of research, the most ever raised by any event anywhere in the world for this compelling cause. Since the event was first held in 2009 it has raised nearly $4 million, which has been instrumental in enabling RSRT to advance the research on this severe neurological disorder to an exciting stage where effective treatments and a major reversal of symptoms are possible.
Together we can make a major difference to advancing the research that is leading to treatments and ultimately a cure for the 350,000 girls and women who struggle every moment of every day with Rett Syndrome.
