RETT SYNDROM AWARENESS- October is Rett Syndrome Awareness month. Marie Bateh joined us to explain what it is and share her story of starting the  SUKI Foundation at Children's of Alabama in honor of her daughter Sarah Katherine, nicknamed Suki. She does hippo therapy on horses for strength and speech therapy using an eye gaze communication device to speak using her eyes since she is non-verbal. Marie tells us about Raise the Roof - an event tomorrow night from 6-10pm at LINC Point (101 Oslo Circle | Birmingham, AL 35211) on the United Cerebral Palsy Campus off Lakeshore. Dr. Alan Percy, a neurologist and Rett Syndrome expert, also joins us. He holds his clinic at UAB Civitan Research Center and travels around the world seeing girls with Rett. Tomorrow's event includes live music, dinner & dessert, complimentary drinks, and a silent auction. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door. For tickets or more information on Rett , visit www.sukifoundation.org. The Suki Foundation hopes to make a difference in the lives of children, like Suki, as we look for ways to educate the community so that the proper diagnosis can be made and optimal therapies obtained to ultimately find a cure for Rett Syndrome by donating funds to Children's of Alabama. Rett Syndrome is a debilitating neurological disorder that affects 1 in every 10,000 female births across the world. Imagine being a parent who discovers your child is not developing as expected - your daughter quits walking and talking, loses the ability to use her hands, and seems to slip into a silent world of her own. In time, seizures may develop, as well as scoliosis and heart problems.
