THE STORY:

"I don't want others to have to struggle to find knowledgeable medical help, the way we did." Tava Wilson Tournant This fun run/walk will benefit The Dysautonomia Project which is a 501.c3 not for profit organization whose goal is to raise awareness of Dysautonomia. Dysautonomia involves disorders of the autonomic nervous system, and usually involve abnormal symptoms in many organ systems, including cardiac, gastrointestinal, neurological, and pulmonary, as well as others. Dysautonomia, an invisible illness, may be one of the most misdiagnosed medical conditions of all time. The biggest problem in autonomic medicine today is the lack of knowledge about dysautonomia in communities and especially community based physicians. In addition to getting the book, entitled The Dysautonomia Project, into the hands of as many medical professionals as possible, TDP is also conducting CME courses for medical personnel so they can be trained in disorders of the Autonomic system and how to treat them. Currently this is rarely taught in medical and nursing school programs, meaning there are few medical personnel who are equipped to handle patients who present with autonomic dysfunction. This effort is personal for me. I am blessed beyond measure to be the mother of Christina Tournant, who voluntarily gave up her fight with POTS/Dysautonomia on March 5th, 2015. Christina loved math, so naturally Pi Day (3/14) was her favorite. Since Pi day falls on a Tuesday, we are holding the event the Saturday before (3/10).
