TSA’s first Australian Comedy for a Cure was held in Melbourne on 6 October 2018. It was a fantastic night and we are thrilled to announce over $12,000 was raised to help fund TSC research here in Australia.

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who attended our event, donated prizes, bid on auction items, purchased raffle tickets, and made donations. There were so many great prizes in our auction and raffle which encouraged guests to dig deep.

We would like to thank the hilarious line up of comedians including Josh Earl and Pete Jones who put on a very funny show, and to Ross Johnston for taking these great photos.

Special thanks to Bridie West who shared her emotional yet hopeful story about her daughter Greta’s journey with TSC. Their world was turned upside down when their baby girl began having unstoppable infantile spasms caused by TSC tumours on her brain.
