Family Focus

Our strength is in our unity. Families scattered across Europe share similar problems and can be very creative in finding different solutions. We want to share your stories, wherever in Europe you are.

Thus, we launched a new project – Family Focus – for sharing stories from families across Europe about their experiences of life with Rett syndrome. We hope you will find them inspiring, heart warming and moving. We also hope you will feel you are not alone in dealing with the challenges that this devastating disorder presents everyday.

Meet our families and send in your stories!
