Odiorne State Park, Rye, NH. Ted Kottcamp, President of OYC Americas, with family & friends, participated in a walk to raise funds and awareness for Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). “Step Forward to Cure Tuberous Sclerosis” supports the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and helps individuals who suffer from this genetic disorder. TSC is a disorder that causes the formation of tumors on vital organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, skin, and eyes.
It is estimated that nearly 1 million people worldwide are known to have TSC, with approximately 50,000 in the United States. TSC is a leading cause of epilepsy and associated with autism, heart disease, cancer, and developmental disabilities.
