Francesca Scarano (Charlotte Bartizek/ For The Dallas Post)
See this girl? Her name is Francesca Scarano and she has RETT Syndrome.
Francesca recently partook in Misericordia University’s seventh annual Cougar Cheer Dance Challenge on November 14th. Her, and several other special needs children, make up the Guided Starz cheering team.
See this girl again? She is traveling the nation spreading awareness to millions of people about RETT Syndrome without
even leaving her house.
This is made possible with Road Scholar Transport’s 10 Million Miles to a Cure Awareness Campaign.
Let me explain.
Francesca was diagnosed at one year old with RETT Syndrome.
RETT Syndrome is a developmental disorder affecting mostly girls, “caused by mutations on the X chromosome” and causing “problems in brain function” (www.rettsyndrome.org).
To support the cause, Road Scholar Transport decided to create not one, not two, but three awareness trailers dedicated to RETT Syndrome awareness, incorporating Francesca’s picture on each trailer.
The RETT Syndrome Foundation is joined with Alex’s Lemonade, Autism Speaks, The American Breast Cancer Foundation, The Children’s Tumor Foundation, Prostate Cancer Awareness, St. Joseph’s Center, The American Foundation for the Blind, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, The Flight 93 National Memorial, The American Red Cross, Clayton’s Hope, Children’s Craniofacial Foundation, Make a Wish Foundation, and Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation, in the Fight for a Cure.
