Help support families affected by Tuberous Sclerosis!

My Baby Clothes Boutique has partnered with the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance to help aid in their fund raising efforts. Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disorder that is either inherited or spontaneously mutated. What this means to you is that TSC affects nearly 50,000 people in the United States and more than one million people worldwide. At least two children born each day will have TSC. Current estimates place TSC-affected births at one in 6,000 live births. The affects of this condition are varying in every case, which is why the medical professionals are researching to gain more understanding. Symptoms and areas affected are the skin, brain, nervous system, kidneys, heart, and tumor growth. Research has linked many cases of cerebral palsy, epilepsy, severe mental retardation, behavior problems, and unexplained tumor growth to Tuberous Sclerosis.

By choosing this partner, My Baby Clothes Boutique felt it could help aid in the research for many other child related disorders. Help them in supporting this Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance and their research, check out their site for more information about them and their good work.

Enter the code “GIVE2TSA” during checkout at My Baby Clothes Boutique to donate 12% of the total purchase to TSA. Now is the best time to buy those little tutus you have wanted but were waiting to buy. Next time you watch her twirl in her new tutu, think about the child you helped with your purchase!!
