Tunes for Barrett is a annual event held at the Oriental Theater with friends and neighbors of our amazing community getting together having fun for a great cause!
As many of you may already know Barrett Kammerer (age 11) was born with an A-Typical Rett Syndrome called CDKL5 variant.
Rett Syndrome (RTT) is a unique neuro-developmental disorder which begins to show its affects in infancy or early childhood. It is seen almost exclusively in females, although it can occur rarely in boys. The disorder severely disrupts the development of gross and fine motor skills as well as robbing girls of their ability to speak and communicate with the outside world. Seizures and breathing problems can also be prevailing symptoms.
It affects every aspect of a family’s life, as these girls are dependent upon others for almost everything, from helping feed them to helping them get around, bathing, and most other daily tasks that most of us take for granted.
