Call out for photos and stories

TSA is currently preparing its Annual Report for 2021. If you would like to share any high quality photos of yourself or your children living with TSC and/or provide quotes about our work, please do get in touch. We'd love to hear from you.

We're also always very happy to hear from anyone in our community who would like to share their TSC story for possible publication in Reach Out and on our website.  We know this can be challenging for some people, but it's a great way to help other people in our community who are going through similar experiences. And, you don't have to write the story yourself. You can take part in a telephone interview and we'll write the story up and send it to you to make changes before it is published.

If you have photos and/or a story you think you'd like to share, please email us - [email protected]

About Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)

TSC is a rare genetic condition that causes tumours to grow in any organ of the body.  It commonly affects the brain, skin, heart, lungs and kidneys. TSC can cause epilepsy, developmental delay and autism. It affects more than 2,000 people in Australia and thousands more carers, families and friends. There is no known cure, but with appropriate support most people with TSC can live fulfilling lives. To find out more about TSC, please watch this short video called “Meet Abby”

For 40 years Tuberous Sclerosis Australia (TSA) has been informing, empowering and connecting people affected by TSC through access to the best treatment options, up to date information and support. We can only continue to do so with your support.
