Success Stories

The TS Alliance of Atlanta/North Georgia hosted its second community event for this fall on October 10. Special thanks to Jodi Mahlon from MetLife who spoke to the local TSC community and provided valuable information on long-term disability planning.

On May 18, 2013, the TS Alliance of Atlanta/N. Georgia held the annual Step Forward to Cure TSC in Marietta, GA. It was a great day for all attendees who enjoyed good company, food, and entertainment while bringing hope to thousands of families living with TSC.  Thank you to all the volunteers that made the event such a success and a special thank you to the committee for her incredible success and dedication as walk chair! Amazing job raising over $70,000!
