The firm also serves as a sponsor of the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, and has made a donation to the organization each time the firm’s Facebook page received a “like.” The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is dedicated to “finding a cure for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) while improving the lives of those affected.” The disease involves a genetic disorder that causes non-malignant tumors to grow in various organs of the body, frequently with life-changing results.
