Fighting Tuberous Sclerosis Complex In Memory Of My Friend
My name is Todd Adams and I am participating in the Step Forward to Cure TSC walk at Little Mulberry Park on May 19, 2018, in memory of my friend, Dee Triemer. Before her untimely death due to cancer in 2015, Dee was a strong advocate for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and hoped to find a cure for her daughter. Her death left a huge void in the fundraising effort for this cruel disease.

1 in 6,000 people are born with TSC every day…50,000 in the U.S…over 1 million worldwide. TSC is more common than Lou Gehrig’s disease and Cystic Fibrosis. Its victims are faced with the daily challenges of seizures, autism, ADHD, facial disfiguration, anxiety, behavioral problems, and medical complications. And there is no cure.
We're making HUGE strides in finding a cure for TSC. Here's what we know now we didn't know a few years ago: TSC is what's called a "linchpin" disease. The genetic pathway involved in TSC is the same pathway affecting more than a dozen major diseases and disorders, including autism, epilepsy, cancer, and obesity. We’ve got a long way to go, but researchers recently initiated a clinical trial to determine if we can actually prevent the development of seizures in babies born with TSC. We're in a race against time and our resources are strained beyond their limits!
Please support our fight by joining me and helping to break the back of this horrific disorder. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
