September was ITP Awareness Month
What a blast we had spreading the word about ITP and showing off our Purple Spirit on the 28th (US) and 30th (UK). But it was not limited to just the US and UK. Around the world, ITPers have shown their support in spreading the word. For example. support groups through PDSA are being set up in Canada. In Germany, there was a ITP Awareness Day and as you will see in Muhammad Tahir's picture, World Platelet Day reached all the corners of the world. Wow, what great bunch of people spreading the word!
Lynda VanderBilt is the captain of our cheer leading squad so she will take our show from here.
