"I was given the opportunity to thank those generous blood donors that have helped save my life, tell my story to hopefully inspire others to regularly give blood, and raise awareness for TTP. We made the local 6pm news and both the Toronto Star and Toronto Sun ran articles (click to view the articles)."
The treatment of T.T.P. is intense in its use of blood plasma.
"I have personally received blood plasma from over 400 donors. Moreover, during my treatment there has been question as to if there was enough of my blood plasma type to provide treatment on a given day. Blood plasma can be derived from a simple blood donation from you, at a local blood donor clinic."
Please consider giving blood on a regular basis. You will save a life!
When you do, please help raise awareness for TTP by giving in honour of TTP. To do so, just provide the following Partners for Life ID # ANSW011432 upon registration.
