“Getting Maylee’s diagnosis was one of the scariest and darkest times of our lives. But the outpouring of love and support we received from International Rett Syndrome Foundation helped us to pick ourselves up and help to carry Maylee through this journey. Knowing all the support we had helped us to be the best caregivers we could possibly be for our sweet girl!” ~ Mallorie and Nathan Stump
