Short Bio and connection to TSC: While pregnant with my first daughter a level two sonogram revealed that she had multiple tumors in her heart. A pediatric cardiologist indicated that she may have a “rare condition called Tuberous Sclerosis.” On 05/05/05 Kierstin was born and offically given the diagnosis of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex. Despite the devastation of the diagnosis we quickly became very active with the national TS Alliance. We were so inspired and appreciative of this group which welcomed us with open arms into “the club.” After paving a path within our community we quickly founded the Community Alliance of Greater Kansas City and have been active for over a decade. I have been active within our community planning educational events, fundraisers and family support gatherings. I have also enjoyed participating in the goverment relations and the Annual March on Capitol Hill both locally and nationally. It is an honor and privilege to volunteer with the TS Alliance!
