The Power Of The Purple Card!
October is Rett Syndrome Awareness month and it is fast approaching! We want everyone out there to know about GP2C's Purple Card!
If you are like me, and I'm sure you are..You hate having to tell the who, what, when, where and why's of Rett Syndrome everyday. Especially if you have your daughter with you. Mine gets particularly upset and looks at me with those eyes as if to say "I am so sick of hearing this and I am sitting right here! Stop talking about me!"
We have a Store category at RettGirl and have added GP2C's Purple Cards.
It's basically a handy little card to keep in your wallet to hand out to people who need info.
Just one mother's opinion:
"I don't know what we would do without our purple card. We have used it everywhere. In the store when strangers are staring. When those uncomfortable moments come where people are asking too many questions and it is neither the time nor the place. When people are arguing that your child has that "Aspirin disorder." Or when they keep telling you that it is not Rett it is Tourette.
I love being able to hand them a card with facts and a place to learn more.
When our daughter was in the hospital we handed it to residents, nurses, surgeons. We had to send someone home to get more after doctors and social workers kept coming in and asking for them.
We have been told that they are they best idea ever for a special needs kid with a uncommon disorder. I could go on and on. Every member of our family has a handful in their wallet!"
You'll never know the power of the purple card until you try! It is a great way to share your Rett
Syndrome story anywhere! Imagine, you won't have to explain all about it in front of your
daughter ever again!
