About
A podcast about the families all over the world who love someone with Rett Syndrome.

"One day you will tell your story of how you've overcome what you're going through now, and it will become part of someone else's survival guide"

Rett Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with no current cure. As a parent of a daughter with Rett Syndrome, I wanted to talk to other parents to hear their stories and also give the newly diagnosed a positive and encouraging place to find comfort.

Caroline Dempster-Fitzpatrick & Charlotte (AUS) – Parenting, Divorce & Rett (Part 1)
Caroline and I have actually known each other for a few years but this was the time first we sat down to talk about how Rett Syndrome has effected her daughter Charlotte and how her divorce has changed their family dynamics.  This is Part 1 of our talk - I didn't want to edit out anything as we both felt that someone in the same position as Caroline would benefit from hearing what she had to say.  To find out more about this episode and links to the topics we discussed, please visit teamjovie.com/podcast.

Jodi Amiri & Avery (USA) – Rollercoasters & Rett
Jodi's 7 year old daughter Avery has Rett Syndrome, but that was not her first diagnosis.  After talking with many families, it was apparent that alot of us experience receiving an Autism diagnosis before we reach the correct diagnosis of Rett. I loved hearing about how funny and fun Avery is and I loved hearing about what inspires Jodi to do more for Avery despite Rett Syndrome.  To find out more about this episode and links to the topics we discussed, please visit teamjovie.com/podcast.

Jo Huxley & Megan (AUS) – Life With A Late Diagnosis
Jo's Rett Syndrome story is a little different to what we're typically used to hearing - her daughter Megan is currently 15 and wasn't diagnosed until she was 12, just 3 years ago.  We had a great talk about how a later diagnosis of Rett Syndrome has effected them, and how Megan is doing today.  To find out more about this episode and links to the topics we discussed, please visit teamjovie.com/podcast.

Part 2 of my chat with Mel for the Remarkable podcast.  Again, we had such a great time chatting about everything they've experienced with Rett Syndrome.

Mel Lancaster & Katelin (USA) – Trails to a Texas Trial and beyond (Part 1)
Mel's daughter Katelin is 26 and living with Rett Syndrome.  It was such an honour to sit down with Mel not only once, but twice, for the podcast. I openly admit that I have alot of learning to do, so talking with Mel was such a great learning experience for me.  We talk about a range of things - from her writing, to Atypical Rett Syndrome, to the clinical trials they were involved in. Mel's blog Trail to a Texas Trial is an amazing recount of everything they've experienced with Rett Syndrome and with the Trofinetide trial.  This is Part 1 of our chat!  To find out more about this episode and links to the topics we discussed, please visit teamjovie.com/podcast.

Welcome to Remarkable!
Welcome to Remarkable - a podcast about the families all over the world, who love someone with Rett Syndrome.   Rett Syndrome is a rare neurodevelopmental, genetic disorder that is caused by mutations on the X chromosome on a gene called MECP2. It causes problems in brain function, and that in turn effects every part of the body - from breathing, to walking, talking, digestion and beyong. There is no current cure for Rett Syndrome.  I will be working with some amazing Rett Syndrome families to bring you the rest of the podcast series closer to October 2019, so I hope you stick around - tell your friends - subscribe and keep in touch. Awareness is built by the community around us, so I thank you for listening and we will be back soon with stories about life with Rett Syndrome.  You can find out more about our family at www.teamjovie.com
