Introducing . . . . THE DREAM TEAM!!!!!!!!!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you our official Juliana Dream Team! What is the Juliana Dream Team you may be asking? Well the Juliana Dream Team is a group of our friends and family that are dedicated to finding a cure for Rett Syndrome. We had our first official meeting last night and it was very exciting to say the least. We started off with a live Skype session from Ingrid Harding, the founder of Girl Power 2 Cure, who shared the latest in all the exciting research going on today. Things are really moving forward and we feel very privileged to be working with such a dynamic, creative, enthusiastic and dedicated group of individuals. What makes this team amazing is that it is comprised of a very diverse group of different backgrounds, different strengths and ideas, but one thing in common, they all adore Juliana and will do whatever it takes to find a cure! We are working on many awesome projects geared towards driving awareness and raising FUNDS. We are so close, but in the words of Ingrid, when the money stops, so does the research! And we absolutely can't take any chance of that happening. So without further ado, here is the team . . . .
