Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance
The TS Alliance is dedicated to finding a cure for tuberous sclerosis complex, while improving the lives of those affected.
Our story is one of determination and devotion—an unyielding determination to help bring about better treatments and a cure for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and an intense devotion to all those who share this battle with us. Individuals and families. Health care professionals. Medical researchers. Friends and family. Everyone who has a stake in this fight can multiply his or her impact by linking arms and working together to bring this disease to the brink of a breakthrough.
The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance (TS Alliance) was founded on the core belief that community is a sustaining strength in the face of difficult challenges. In 1974 four mothers who shared the common bond of tuberous sclerosis complex came together to provide fellowship, generate awareness, pursue more knowledge and offer hope to each other. That was the birth of the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, and the spirit and intention of those founders permeate everything we do to this day.
