The 1st Vancouver TTP Support Group and Information Session held on March 5, 2011. We had 6 patients, 4 supporters and two doctors in attendance. Dr. Yenson gave an overview of TTP which set the stage for participants to asked questions furthering the knowledge of all in attendance.
Seven first time donors were amoungst the donors who came out on December 2, 2010 to support the blood drive. The consensus from the donors who donated blood for the first time was that of surprised relief at how easy it was. “I thought I would feel different, but I don’t” said Jeannie, “I will be donating every 56 days from now on.”
But we still have a long way to go!
