IT’S TIME TO GET PUMPED FOR PDSA’S 5th NATIONAL WALK/RUN!
Imagine: As a child...being told you can't play on the playground, ride a bike, participate in 'normal' childhood activities or contact sports because a bump, cut, or impact to your head could lead to life-threatening bleeding.
Imagine: As a parent...trying to get emergency help for your bleeding child and being accused of abuse because your child is covered with bruises.
Imagine: As an adult...waking up in the morning, your mouth full of blood blisters, heading off to work with a nosebleed that won’t stop for hours, or going to bed at night with a headache fearing you’re having a brain hemorrhage and won’t wake up in the morning.
Imagine living this life with no hope of a cure EVERY day...
This is life in the World of ITP
So put on your walkin’ shoes and
Pump It Up For Platelets! ~ for a world free of ITP
(you’ll get a cool tote bag too!)
