Rett Syndrome Network

Hello. I am the father of a girl who is suffering from Rett Syndrome. I am awaiting an answer from the genetic research but other possibilities, simpler, could be within our reach and would also be worth exploring. We are all experts in our daughters. If we mutualized our experiences, your daughter and mine will have everything to gain.
I wish to create together with you a network to make our daughters move forward.
My phone number is on the website below. Call me, so you will understand better how sincere I am and my motivation as a dad.
I would appreciate greatly if you could forward this to the largest number of people. Thank you. Jérôme

Rett Syndrome community map

Hello everyone!

We are very happy to announce a new update of the community.

Maybe you have already checked out that in the Members section there is a new world map. It is a more visual and fast way to contact other community members.

3 important things:

1) To appear on the map you only have to edit your profile and add the location. If you already have done it, you can also specify your city, even zip code.

2) Unless you have the profile marked as public, the information on the map is only visible for members that have registered to the community. This means that visitors may see the map but not the spots and the links.

3) If you wish, you can also make your spot in the map only visible for your friends within the community. This option can be changed always from your profile.

If you have any question, leave me a comment below!

Thanks Marta, this is great :-)
