Thank You
for your Help in 2013!



If you; volunteered, made a donation to us, participated in an event or learned more about ITP from our website, you helped kids with ITP, so Thank You!

The work we are able to do, with your help, to support medical research and raise awareness is challenging and it could not be done without you.

Your support helps KIDS with ITP live better and safer lives.


In 2013 your support allowed us to grant $15,000 to the PARC ITP study conducted by: The Intercontinental Cooperative ITP Study Group (ICIS).

Over the last nine years, your help has allowed us to make research grants totaling $200,000 - all which  benefited KIDS with ITP.


In 2014 we would like to fund new research efforts, but we need your help and continued support; so let's wish for great 2014!

ITP Foundation

We have established the ITP Foundation for the sole purpose of helping others. We personally understand the issues surrounding this blood disorder and the effect it has on children and adolescents as well as the family dynamic.

We hope to help empower doctors, nurses, researchers, patients and families who deal with this disorder on a daily basis. We encourage you to explore this site as we believe that the exchange of information is a good way to raise awareness and expand knowledge about Immune Thrombocytopenia ("ITP"), a very rare bleeding disorder.
