Platelet Disorder Support Association (PDSA) is a GREAT organization. You’ll find helpful resource for patients with Immune Thrombocyto Penia (ITP). PDSA Provides education, treatment information from top doctors who treat ITP patients and a patient sharing forum, where you can talk with others who have had ITP for years. Their National conference is a must to attend and information received is so current, that even your treating physicians probably haven’t learned most of the information about ITP that you’ll learn about there. The opportunity to exchange information with others who face the same challenges is priceless and this organization is the place to go if you, a family member or friend has ITP. By becoming a member, the “Platelet News” you’ll receive is amazing and full of current valuable information and you’ll look forward to receiving each issue, so sign up today and get the best and current ITP information you’ll ever find anywhere. As a patient with ITP for 27 years, finding the PDSA 10 years ago was a life changing opportunity and I’m forever thankful for the continued relationship I have with them. If you’re a patient with ITP, you’ll be so happy when you go to the PDSA website, because the information available there is not available anywhere else to the extent it is available there.
