The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance (TSA) is a voluntary non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) while improving the lives of those afflicted. TSC (tuberous sclerosis complex) is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form in various organs, primarily the brain, heart, kidney, liver, skin and lungs. People with TSC often develop epilepsy, autism and learning and behavioral problems. The TS Alliance is committed to promoting and sponsoring medical research related to the diagnosis, cause, management, and cure of TS, and ensuring that affected individuals and families have access to appropriate medical services, support services, and resource information. It is involved in the development of public and professional educational programs aimed at increasing awareness of TS and prompting early diagnosis and effective treatment.
