Blue Sky Girls event
October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month. A local family whose daughter, Sophia, suffers from this devastating neurological disorder hopes to raise awareness for this condition that strikes another little girl every 90 minutes. Using the steps of the Old Lake Courthouse, local families affected by Rett Syndrome will hold a ceremony. Local fire and police officials have offered their support to help any of the girls who need assistance climbing to the top. If a girl or women is wheelchair-bound, they will carry her, step by step, to the top. Rett Syndrome was proven reversible in 2007. By raising awareness, Rett Syndrome could become the first curable neurological disorder.
