ITP is different for everyone

Every ITP journey of diagnosis and treatment is unique. The following stories of struggle and resilience may help you understand what you or a loved one may be going through.

Meet Jim

Now Krystal has come to terms with her new reality and has learned not to let platelet counts rule her life.
