In a bonus episode, host Dan Klein connects with Kristen Moore, Vice Chair of the TSC Alliance of the Carolinas and Step Forward to Cure TSC Walk Chair for the Carolinas Walk. Kristen and her husband, Douglas, moved to Charlotte in 2012 and welcomed their TSC Warrior Jackson to the world in 2019. Jackson was diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) when he started having seizures at seven weeks old. He underwent laser ablation brain surgery at 17 months. Kristen is a fierce advocate for Jackson and is committed to raising awareness, advocating and fundraising for a better future, services, research, and ultimately a cure, for him and others in the TSC community. Earlier this year, Kristen was honored as a Volunteer of the Year at the Volunteer Appreciation Celebration in Washington, DC, part of the TSC Alliance’s annual Volunteer Leadership Summit.

Kristen shares her family’s diagnostic journey, what motivated her to volunteer, and how the TSC community helped her navigate the waves of this disease.
