Do You Like Tacos?

Of course you like tacos! Who doesn't?!

Now that we've cleared that up, please consider helping my friend Angelica's daughter Alexis by buying a taco plate for lunch and/or dinner Friday, May 1. For $6, you get two tacos, rice, ranchero beans and salsa - guaranteed to be super delicious!

The proceeds will help Alexia's family get the medical equipment necessary to help her prosper. Alexia has Rett Syndrome, a neurological disorder that strikes at random and deprives little girls of speech, normal movement and hand use. It also bends their spines, weakens their bones and brings seizures, difficulties breathing and swallowing and blood pressure/heart rate instability. RTT leaves its victims disabled and dependent on others for every basic need. There are no treatments or cure.

If you're interested in ordering tacos or making a donation, please let me know by Friday, April 24! They will be delivered so tell your coworkers, friends, etc.!

Hi! I stumbled on your post about Alexia and would love to let their family know about my organization, Girl Power 2 Cure! My daughter has Rett as well (age 8). The website is www.girlpower2cure.org. If she would like to contact us, we have a fun kit we mail out that includes a CD! Best wishes for a great fund raiser!
