In a final bonus episode in 2023, host Dan Klein connects with Gloria Triebenbach, Chair of the TSC Alliance of the Pacific Northwest and Step Forward to Cure TSC Walk Chair for the walk in Renton, Washington. Gloria describes herself as a mother of an adult daughter with TSC, honorary mother of a 2nd adult daughter with TSC, and mom of 2 adults without TSC.
“I am an advocate, a wife, a grandma and a nurse. Our family knows good days and we know terrible, horrible days that start with the worst that tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) can hand out. It takes a huge dedicated team of people to work on issues as big as TSC and my goal is to not stop until TSC is defeated. My family and I give everything, but up!”
Gloria was honored as a Volunteer of the Year at the Volunteer Appreciation Celebration in Washington, DC, part of the TSC Alliance’s annual Volunteer Leadership Summit.
