Rett Syndrome is a unique developmental disorder that affects one in every 10,000 female births worldwide. It causes severe cognitive impairment including loss of communication and motor skills, reduced growth and unusual breathing patterns. Children's of Alabama and the University of Alabama at Birmingham operate one of the few Rett clinics in the southeastern United States. The Suki Foundation was created in honor of 7-year-old Sarah Katherine "Suki" Bateh of Hoover, who has Rett Syndrome. The foundation aims to make a difference in the lives of children diagnosed with Rett Syndrome by raising funds to expand and accelerate research efforts at Children's. Research focuses on better understanding of Rett Syndrome, new treatments and, ultimately, a cure.
