Success Stories 

On October 04, 2014, the TS Alliance of the Heartland held their annual Step Forward to Cure TSC in West Des Moines, IA. This year, the theme for the Step Forward to Cure TSC walks is Super Heroes. Individuals, families, friends and supporters were encouraged to participate dressed like their favorite hero, be it a cartoon character, professional or mentor. Thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors and participants that helped to make this year’s event such a memorable occasion and a special thank you to Ryan and Cindy Blackard for their incredible success and dedication as walk chairs!  You can view or upload photos by visiting
