Hello everyone, this is the start of a very exciting journey in my life that hopefully will impact yours and many little girls around the world with Rett Syndrome as well! From the outside this may just look like a father and his son walking 2189 miles from Maine to Georgia, but to the two hiking it (me and my dad) this is something big. Something that can change lives with your help. So from here, where the journey begins, follow me as I share our adventures, struggles, triumphs, blessings, and hope for a cure. Let the journey begin!
