SWEAR 2 CHANGE the perception of TS...and support our families!

TS Awareness Month is May 15th through June 15th

Help us change the community's perception of Tourette Syndrome by joining our "Swear 2 Change CAMPaign" during TS Awareness month (#Swear2ChangeCAMPaign). Proceeds will go towards our "Camper Financial Assistance" program. We hope to let the public know that inappropriate words or "coprolalia" only effects approximately 10% of the TS population, yet those with Coprolalia need our compassion as well. Set up your own Swear 2 Change jar and challenge your family, friends, or co-workers to donate to the jar anytime they swear. We hope that the public understands that this symptom stigmatizes individuals with Tourette Syndrome, and that education, empathy, and compassion will goes a long way in supporting them.

Join us for our #Swear2Change CAMPaign for 2017!
