October 27: Toronto Support Group & Info Session

The 3rd Toronto TTP Support Group and Information Session held on October 27, 2011 was a more intimate sized group. We had more engagement from attendees than ever before.

Special thanks to the courageous patients who shared their experiences with the group. As always, these patient stories were very well received and broke the ice for the small group discussions. The small group discussions went so well, they went overtime and were still hard to wrap up.

Planning Team with Dr. Rock: Dianna, Gergana, Syd & Dr. Rock (Chair, Canadian Apheresis Group)

We were very lucky to have had Dr. Rock, Chair of the Canadian Apheresis Group, to present information about her work. The evolution and ongoing study of TTP in Canada was very interesting. There is so much research opportunity to improve the prognosis for all TTP patients.
