A Father and Son Living with TS Featured on NPR

The bond between a father and son can be a strong and special one. We don’t hear enough positive stories about this relationship when TS is in the picture. We’re pleased to report that NPR recently featured Josh and Max, a father and son affected by TS on their Morning Edition radio show, and it’s worth a listen.

You’ll notice how well Josh and Max support, defend and understand each other. We see this with our families and it reminds us of the truth in the saying “the family who tics together, sticks together”!

Listen to the clip and read transcript on the NPR website.

Career Advice for People Living with TS from Our Chapter President

GTA Chapter President Malumir Logan recently shared her experience in navigating career advancement while living with Tourette Syndrome. She discussed the importance of developing inner leadership, and one key practice to support success in both professional and personal goals.

I worried over whether I would be taken seriously or valued as much as colleagues with ‘normal’ neurology.

Check out her article, "Transforming Setbacks to Achieve Professional Goals: A Daily Self-Leadership Practice," here.

Also, if you can think of anyone who would make a great volunteer and contribute to our Chapter's success, please share this link with them (contact info is at the bottom of the LinkedIn article). We're always on the lookout for great talent!

Trek for Tourette Thank-Yous & Photos

Last week's Trek for Tourette gave us sunshine, wind and rain, but we trekked on bravely. Thanks to everyone who trekked, donated and volunteered this year. A special thank you to Sam Kaplun for delivering a wonderfully eloquent speech before the Trek began.

We'll have a grand total once all the donations have been processed. In the meantime, please enjoy photos from the day, taken by our very own ace photographer Andrew Stewart.

And a final thank you to Trek Queen Suzanne Olley for her tireless work in making the 2017 Trek happen. You're the best, Suzanne!
