DONATE TO TAMS
Please help us educate and support both people with mast cell diseases (MCD) including mastocytosis, MCAS and HaT, as well as health and medical practitioners. Many people with MCD are provided with limited correct information especially when trying to adjust to their diagnosis. We seek your help with fundraising and developing these resources to make a real difference to these people’s quality of life.
BECOME A MEMBER
TAMS is a volunteer-run, membership association. TAMS members receive discounts for TAMS conferences and events, member e-newsletters, online and face-to-face support groups and more.
The TAMS committee advocates on behalf of TAMS Members to the medical community and government.
TAMS receives a lot of emails, calls and messages from people seeking diagnosis and treatment for their mast cell diseases. We have put together some information to help you with your diagnosis and treatment journey. If you need support finding a specialist in your area, please contact us. You can also join our Patient Support Group on Facebook.
TAMS Research Fund
Since its inception in 2012, TAMS has championed national and international research into mast cell diseases. But we want to do more. The TAMS Research Advisory Committee is working to develop a research grants program, to fund specific post-grad studies into mast cell disorders.
We need your help to reach our target of $30,000. We have already raised $7,900, so we are calling on you to help us raise another $22,100.
