The TSC Alliance’s TSC Connect (formerly the Support Network and Matching Program) is an organized partnership of individuals whose lives have been affected by tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). The volunteers are committed to offering support and sharing their experiences with others who are faced with the challenges of tuberous sclerosis complex. Across the nation, TSC Connect is providing the latest medical information, education and support to those individuals who are seeking understanding about the genetic disorder and offering them words of encouragement and empowerment.
Volunteers come to the network with a wealth of knowledge, awareness and experiences. TSC Connect is designed to connect individuals either by specific geographical area, manifestations, or age of TSC individual and lets volunteers choose the issues they have personal experience with and are willing to discuss with others.
