The Twin To Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation

If you have followed my story you already know that at 20 weeks the Doctors diagnosed one set of twins with TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome). In a word it was terrifing. I was diagnosed on Monday, flew to Los Angels Tuesday and had life saving surgery performed on Wednesday.

Monday evening my worried Mother searched online to get more information about TTTS, she discovered The Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome Foundation, Founded by Mary Slaman. 

My Mom got on the phone 1-800-815-9211 and called Mary directly and was so thankful that she did. Mary was a fountain of information about TTTS. After talking with Mary my Mother knew we had a fighting chance to save my babies.  Mary gave us knowledge (which is power) and hope. We knew what to ask the doctors and what we could expect.

Please repost and pass this TTTS Foundation contact information along you may be helping save some babies.
