Cynthia was born with tuberous sclerosis -- also called tuberous sclerosis complex. TSC is a rare, multi-system genetic disease that causes benign tumors to grow in the brain and on other vital organs such as the kidneys, heart, eyes, lungs and skin. It usually affects the central nervous system and results in a combination of symptoms including seizures, developmental delay, behavioral problems, skin abnormalities and kidney disease. There is no cure for TSC, although treatment is available for a number of the symptoms. With a service dog, seizures can be detected before the onset, which will allow Cynthia to live life more independently. Within hours, "King" Jersey had already alerted Cythinia's parents that a small seizure was about to occur.
