Answering TTP In The News

Mina Shares Her Story

Over the years, Mina has bravely shared her story to raise life-saving awareness and improve treatment options for our TTP community. Thank you Mina!


What is in a name? TTP

Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura is a mouthful! It took me months before it would roll off my tongue (and it sometimes still gets stuck). The good news, is that the name is meaningful even to those medical professionals unfamiliar with this rare and devastating disease.

  • Thrombotic -  blood clots form in the blood vessels
  • Thrombocytopenic -  having too few platelets
  • Purpura - bruising spots on the skin
