This Christmas, you can help families like Felix’s have someone to turn to for life changing help and support.
Take a moment to imagine a world without TSA. In this world, when you or someone you love is diagnosed with this incurable rare disease, there is no one at the end of the phone that can answer your questions. There is no one who can listen to your fears and understand the shock, isolation and grief that comes after you hear the words ‘tuberous sclerosis complex’ for the first time.
All of our Sydney TSC community, particularly families with young children, are invited to join us on 1 December to help launch our new resource to explain TSC to children.
If you cannot make this event, sign up to TSA’s email newsletter for more information about this book and how you can get your copy.
