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 under the trusty skills of haematologist and one of Australia’s leading experts in ITP, Dr Robert Bird.
We wanted to get to know each of our ITP Australia Medical Advisory Board members a little more so we caught up with Terry recently to find out a little more about her and why she does the amazing things that she does.
