121: Understanding Rett Syndrome

Janelle Noble Donovan, creator of ANSHI, developed a product literally at her daughter Raegan’s hospital bedside. Raegan has a genetic condition called Rett Syndrome and according to RettSyndrome.org, the unique postnatal neurological disorder is often misdiagnosed as autism, cerebral palsy or non-specific developmental delay.

Rett Syndrome is caused by mutations on the X Chromosome on a gene called MECP2. Common medical concerns may include, but are not limited to: epilepsy, disrupted sleep, orthopedic dysfunction, osteoporosis, spasticity, anxiety and/or early-onset puberty.

Katarina Van Derham is no ordinary supermodel, she’s a bad ass babe! Not only is she absolutely gorgeous, she’s got a heart as big as her beauty!

Now, she’s a super successful model with her own Vegan Fashion Magazine, Viva Glam, which shows women that it’s not only easy to eat vegan, but to wear vegan as well!
