Nurse Jenn is incredibly caring, kind and responsive. If we have a question or need assistance, she meets with the TSC team and gets back to us immediately. There’s never any delay. Luke and his family appreciate her so much!

Andrea Forsythe
Boston MA United States

Dr. Jurriaan Peters truly cares about his patients. When we first met Dr. Peters, he studied Luke’s ~100 page medical history before meeting with us to review next steps. He very well prepared. Dr. Peters’s first med plan gave Luke ~3mon seizure freedom. When the seizures came back and we were at the end of our rope, he proposed a new plan that gave Luke a year and a half of seizure freedom and is still holding strong. He’s called to check in on Luke from home. He cares so much!

We are “frequent fliers” at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The doctors, nurses, pharmacists, eeg techs have been such a big part of our lives.

We are so blessed to have this world class hospital available to us.

Vitalina, my daughter is sick TSC. We’re extremely glad about the fact, that she hasn’t abandoned us, though this disease is a great challenge to accomplish. Thanks to her, we have made many friends and managed to rediscover the world in all its beauty and vibrance of colour, far beyond the imagination of children, not stricken with such disease. Slowly, yet surely we try hard to learn something in this life. The diagnosis given at the 32nd week of pregnancy (officially at 3 months).

This is Hannah and her step dad, David. Hannah has overcome so many challenges that she faces daily and is a true inspiration and such a strong little girl. In this picture, she is 7 days recovered from a two part brain surgery to hopefully cure her seizures. David races a stock car with the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance logo on the hood, to honor Hannah and to raise awareness and funds for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. We are proud to participate in TSC Global Awareness Day!

Thanks to my daughter Haley, who has shown me courage, determination and strength since being diagnosed with a Giant Cell Astrocytoma at 6 months old. She has fought TSC every step of the way and for a girl they said wouldn’t live past 12, she’s doing pretty good at 26.

We are thanking Dr Thomas Halperin. He was Audrey’s pediatrician when she was diagnosed with TSC at 4 mos old. Not only did he help get her diagnosed quickly, but he also gave me, as her mother, advice, that has guided me through countless tests, therapy and four brain surgeries. He said two things that every parent of a special needs child should hear: 1)Drs. are experts on medicine, but YOU are the expert on your child, and 2)Audrey doesn’t know anything’s wrong, so we won’t treat her that way

Our mother taught us to embrace the journey living with Tuberous Sclerosis. Throughout the years and endless doctors appointments, my brother’s 2 major brain surgeries for his seizures, our mother has always been our hero <3 The strength, courage and unconditional love she has given us, have made us who we are today. For that, along with the endless support from our many loved ones, we couldn’t be more proud to be TS warriors! :0) We learned to only become stronger and wouldn’t change a thing <3

Parker & Shelby Gorgas
Fort Worth TX United States

I think that Parker and Shelby would thank their daddy, Brett, for not being so scared of TSC that it kept him from wanting to have kids of his own. If he had, Parker and Shelby, both of whom have TSC, and their big brother, Harrison, who does not, would not be here today. Brett and his dad both have TSC and serve as great models to Parker and Shelby that TSC is not a road block to a wonderful life. (Completed by mommy, Melissa)

Dr. Rosser has been amazing with us over the last four years. From the very beginning she has always been available for consult and immediately responds to any questions, emails or calls. Going way beyond the call of duty, she remembers everything about not only Ella but our whole family. Couldn’t ask for a better neurologist for my daughter and certainly never even imagined there was someone as wonderful as her out there. Thank you from all of the Sanders clan, Dr. Rosser!
