We at the Bar Z are reaching out to ask for help. We have recently had the pleasure to meet Bill Farnum and the folks at Casting 4 A Cure! Bill has started a non-profit foundation to help raise money to extend and aid in the research for a much needed cure of Rett Syndrome. They use the great sport of fly fishing to help their cause by putting on two great fishing tournaments, one in Steamboat, Colorado and the other in Victor, Idaho. Best of luck to all the teams entering this years tournaments!
Rett Syndrome (RTT) is a unique neurodevelopmental disorder which begins to show its affects in infancy or early childhood. It is seen almost exclusively in females, although it can occur rarely in boys. The disorder severely disrupts gross and fine motor skills as well as robbing the girls of their ability to speak and communicate with the outside world. Seizures and breathing problems can also be prevailing symptoms.
It affects every aspect of a family’s life, as the girls become dependent for almost everything, from helping feed them to helping them get around, bathing, and most other daily tasks that most of us take for granted.
Bill Farnum has started the Casting 4 A Cure, and we feel it is important to help out his foundation as much as we can. If you’d like to help C4C out, the best part is that it is helping to save our younger generations of young girls and your donations are classified as 501-3c. If you’d like to help please go to the C4C donation site and do what you can to help!
To watch a very touching video and see why it has spurred us to do anything we can to help out the C4C foundation, watch this video, Give Our Girls A Voice. Thank you for your help!
