In Jan. 2007 Gov. Jon Corzine joined us at the Natural History Clinic in New Brunswick to sign the Rett Syndrome Awareness bill, declaring the third Tuesday of each October as Rett Syndrome Awareness Day in NJ. This it the month to contact your local media and ask them to do a story about Rett. Talk to your school, co-worker, and anyone you can to help spread awareness this month.
On Monday, October 27, 2008, Robin Turner—our BEST Rett Syndrome Advocate—made it possible for us to be on the floor of the NJ State Assembly in Trenton for a formal resolution for Rett Syndrome Awareness! We had 10 of our girls on the floor, in front of the full Assembly for a reading of the formal resolution declaring Rett Syndrome Awareness Day in NJ.
