Tammy Kouns knows she can't change the fact that her daughter, Abby Blevins, has tuberous sclerosis (TS).

What she can do, she says, is participate in research that may someday lead to a cure.

Abby was part of a research study (a carefully planned test to help researchers learn more about a particular condition) using medication to help treat tuberous sclerosis (TS).

Kouns says it's important to her to be involved in studies at Cincinnati Children's because she hopes for a better treatment and peace of mind for families like hers.
