About Turner Syndrome Foundation


We understand babies born affected by TS require a lifetime of special care beyond the pediatric setting and, for many, there are hurdles in obtaining a diagnosis early enough in life to receive critical health screenings and timely interventions, and more importantly to find knowledgeable providers to care and support their individual needs through all stages of life.  We see a void in transition from pediatric to adult care, and its effects on those with the disorder and their community.

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.

The Foundation relies on a considerable body of volunteers to execute many of the programs and services we provide. This enables us to be better stewards of our donors’ gifts. 

Our core Talent Management Team oversees nearly all the volunteer work in fundraising, and volunteer development, online community forum, national TEAM TSF athletic events, Treats and Sweets Bake Sale, patient education material distribution, newsletter and other communication and awareness programs. Time and talent are needed in these and other areas, either on an ongoing or short-term basis.
