Short Bio and connection to TSC: I am a mom of 3 boys and wife to a wonderful husband. I live in Iowa and have been a Registered Nurse for 12 years. I first heard about TSC when I had an ultrasound at 35 weeks pregnant. Cardiac rhabdomyomas were found on the ultrasound and he was diagnosed with TSC a month later. Since the diagnosis, I realized that I would like to get involved with the TS Alliance for my son and others with TSC. I look forward to bringing the TSC community together and acquiring TSC research money so we can someday find a cure.
