We at the Turner Syndrome Foundation understand that babies born with Turner Syndrome require a lifetime of specialized care beyond the pediatric setting. Obstacles often impede an early diagnosis for girls to receive critical health screenings and timely, life-altering, interventions. We see a void in transition from pediatric to adult care, and its effects on those with the disorder and their community. Significant issues abound with finding knowledgeable educators and providers for all stages of life.
The Foundation’s advocacy efforts identify these gaps and give voice to leaders who can make a difference. The vision to improve the understanding of TS and to render support for women and children living with TS is made possible by advancing communications and inspiring relevant interest in this women’s health issue.
Turner Syndrome affects 1 in 2,000 females. We can help.
The goal of the Turner Syndrome Foundation (TSF) is to support research initiatives and facilitate education programs that increase professional awareness and enhance medical care of those affected by Turner syndrome. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatments over the lifespan may lead to a brighter and healthier future for all young girls and women with Turner syndrome. TSF is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
“First a baby, soon a growing child, and finally a woman, our efforts must transcend the Turner Syndrome life span.”
