Danielle was diagnosed with Immune Thrombocytopenia in June 2015. Looking and feeling healthy, she thought that she just ‘bruised like a peach’ and that, along with her other symptoms from over the years were considered normal. Then in June 2015, after a trip to the hospital with what she thought was the flu, a full blood count identified Danielle as having ITP. Luckily, her diagnosis was made by one of Australia’s leading ITP haematologists, Dr Robert Bird.
Leading ITP clinicians come together and deliver consensus guidelines for the treatment of (ITP) in adult patients.
Welcome to the 2022 Spring Edition The Count. A quarterly newsletter created to update the ITP community on the latest updates and activities by ITP Australia and in the world of Immune Thrombocytopenia.
In this edition, we highlight the activities planned for 2022 ITP Awareness Week and how you can get involved, our recent trip to Seattle, Washington USA to meet with other international patient associations, focus on the importance of sleep, launch our NEW patient resources, and so much more!
Many of you have had the pleasure of meeting or hearing from Patricia. While she joined ITP Australia in early 2022, her ITP Journey started many years earlier. Read her story here.
