The Australasian Mastocytosis Society (TAMS) has been created as an advocacy, education and support body for those throughout Australasia who suffer from or care for those with Mastocytosis or Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD). TAMS has been established due to the overwhelming need for sufferers and their supporters to find a local voice and active support network.
TAMS is an independent ‘not for profit’ incorporated organisation with a committed and functional volunteer committee of individuals – all of whom are sufferers or carers – ensuring your needs will be met. Meet the TAMS committee
TAMS’ three founding members are David Mayne, Claire Ellis and Kristin Sinclair, who in 2011-12 acted upon their desire for support, education, research and advocacy within Australasia for mastocytosis (and later mast cell activation disorder) patients, and established TAMS.
“TAMS is my Aussie Masto family where we learn everything there is about this rare disease. My family wouldn’t be where we are without them. And we have made many friendships over the years by going along to our Conferences and to help raise awareness.”
