FDNY firefighters supported dozens of young girls with Rett syndrome and their families on Oct. 1 for New York City’s Blue Sky Girls event, which aims to increase awareness for the disease.

Rett syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that leads to developmental reversals, especially in the areas of language and hand use. Since it is on the X chromosome, it affects only girls.
