Social Responsibility Policy
SERIES has long believed that each company also plays an important social role. That is why since 2012 we have been regularly supporting AETN - Associação de Esclerose Tuberosa in Portugal, an association of patients suffering from tuberous sclerosis. Tuberous Sclerosis is a genetic disease that results from mutations in the TSC1, which encodes hamartin, and TSC2, which encodes tuberin, genes. These mutations enhance the development of benign tumors in vital organs such as the heart, eyes, brain, kidneys, lungs and skin. The growth of these tumors reveals an aggressive behavior because it threatens the function of the affected organs. Two-thirds of the diagnoses are new cases of the disease without any family history, and one-third are hereditary cases. When it manifests, the disease can cause epilepsy, autism or cognitive impairment.
Despite being a rare disease, it impacts not only the patient but the entire group that supports him. The A.E.T.N. was born from the willingness of a group of parents and relatives to improve the quality of life of these patients. Learn more about AETN here: https://www.esclerosetuberosa.org.pt/
