We exist to help twins who have lost their twin.
The Twinless Twins Support Group International™ (TTSGI) provides a safe and compassionate community for twinless twins to experience healing and understanding. TTSGI also provides support for twins and other multiples who have lost their twin due to death at any age. We provide support to twinless twins through regional meetings, national conferences, and educational resources. As a community of grieving twins, we shed light on difficult questions unique to twin loss.
The late Dr. Raymond Brandt, twin to Robert, founded TTSGI™ in 1987, in an effort to support hurting twinless twins around the globe. Click here to learn more about our founder.
