Grace for Rett » Grace's Life with Rett Syndrome

The boys raise money for RSRT

Yesterday morning, the boys decided to raise money for Grace’s cure because they “want her to play with us”. So Jack donated his piggy bank and they came up with a bag of toys {and one fossil} which they were willing to sell in exchange for £3.

Elijah got up at church and made his announcement about the plan and explained about “Grace’s hero Dr. Adrian Bird”. He showed his drawing of ‘the Rett rat’ before & after the cure which happened in Dr. Bird’s lab in 2007:

Then he showed the mathematical equation for the ‘potion’:

They both then spent the whole time after church standing by their table {why didn’t I take a picture?!?} selling their wares and calling people over to make a donation. In total, they raised £69.30! Go Elijah & Jack!

Just adorable, your boys are such great big brothers. I thought you slept with your camera Elizabeth 😉 I bet you’ll get some snaps of their stall next time. They are dedicated little men. You must be so proud of all three of them.

I found you, Elizabeth, from the DPS website. Ever since I have been a huge fan of your work and have learned so much from your videos. This is the sweetest thing I have ever heard. You have a wonderful family! I will keep Grace in my prayers for you and also for a cure for Rett Syndrome.

[…] Yes, we do. Huge thanks to Nicky for her kind permission to share this conversation and great appreciation to Elijah Halford for the splendid picture below demonstrating why he and brother Jack did this fundraising in hope for a better future for their sister, Grace, just a few weeks ago […]
