There are so many people who have helped make Katelin’s participation possible. Please follow Katelin and I as we journey into the unknown with the NNZ-2566 trial and beyond.  A cure for Rett Syndrome is within our reach and hopefully by participating in this study, Katelin can be part of that cure and the girls and boys that come after her will not have to suffer the devastating effects of this disorder. Thank you to all the many, many wonderful people who are making this possible.

    Hi Melinda, sorry if I’m bothering you but as all others I do follow your posts every day to keep that hope you drawn, is the day coming to see our daughters talking, walking and living the regular life ? 24 hours I asked God this hope to come true , why not as long I belief in miracle , is Trofinetide holding our dreams and hopes ? I don’t know really but I hope and living to belief in it, again sorry for disturbing you with my question but I see that you are the right person with huge knowledge of the promising medicine named trofinetide
    Regards to you and your angle katelin

      Oh, you are not bothering me! I don’t know the answer to your question. I hope so. I believe it will make a tremendous difference, but there are many unanswered questions- how much will it help, will girls respond differently, will a point be reached when there is no more improvement and there still are issues that need to be addressed. Only time will tell the answers, but I do not believe it is a false hope to think that Trofinetide may help a great deal. Keeping you in my thoughts as we wait for this next trial and keep my fingers crossed it is a success.
