The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is the only national voluntary health organization in the United States dedicated to finding a cure for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) while improving the lives of those affected. In 1974, four mothers formed the organization to provide fellowship, generate awareness, pursue knowledge and offer hope to those who shared the common bond of TSC. TSC is a rare genetic disorder that causes tumors to form in vital organs, including the brain, eyes, skin, liver, lungs, heart and kidneys.  It is also the leading genetic cause of both autism and epilepsy.  TSC affects about 50,000 in the United States and more than 1 million worldwide.  Currently, there is no cure.  Since 2010, there have been two FDA-approved treatments to shrink tumors in the brain and kidneys of those with TSC, and promising research continues for additional therapies to improve the quality of daily life for every individual with TSC.
