Meet the Team

One of the unique things about our team is that we all come from different backgrounds, with different experiences, but we share one unique passion – to raise awareness of Twin Anemia Polycythemia Sequence, and ensure that families and the wider community know all about it.

We’re also passionate about making sure that research into TAPS continues, and together we create a supportive community, filled with enthusiasm and care. We’re leading the change in how TAPS is seen in the wider world. It’s time to meet the team!

Facebook Team

Our thriving Facebook TAPS Support Group has an amazing moderating team that looks after the group, answers your questions, and keeps the fun alive.

The Facebook team are an essential part of our online presence, supporting families, moderating posts, sharing new information, and building our community. Without them, the TAPS Support Foundation‘s Facebook group wouldn’t be as successful as it is.

They will find you resources from our pages, share their experiences, and most of all, make sure you feel at home.
