We invite you to join with us in the work of the Tarlov Cyst Disease Foundation. We welcome your knowledge, special abilities and assistance in helping us further the objectives of the Foundation.
One important way to help is to participate in our surveys. If you had surgery or other procedures to treat Tarlov cysts, you have important information to share with us. If you are newly diagnosed and have not yet had any treatment, your information regarding your symptoms,location of your cyst(s), your geographic location, your age at onset and significant events at onset of your symptoms are all very important.We will collect this cumulative information and put it into a scientific database. The analysis from these surveys, along with those conducted with physicians, will bring researchers one step closer to finding the cause, improved treatment and a cure for Tarlov cyst disease.
Another way to join us is by becoming a member of the Foundation or by making a donation. Becoming a member of the foundation is a choice and not a requirement, just as is the choice to make a donation to the foundation. The Foundation's website is free for all to view and become better informed about Tarlov cyst disease as well as to learn about the Foundation's efforts on behalf of all those with Tarlov cysts. Membership participation is one way of partnering with the Foundation, and membership fees will be used to fund and promote research and education. We will welcome your assistance in making a difference for the future for all those diagnosed with symptomatic Tarlov cysts.
"Philanthropy ... is a natural act of giving, prompted by a spirit of caring and concern."
