The ITP Foundation was established in 2003 to raise awareness of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a rare bleeding disorder characterized by the abnormal decrease of the blood cells known as platelets. Since platelets help to prevent and stop bleeding, a common symptom of ITP is abnormal bleeding into the skin. There are both acute and chronic forms of this disease. The ITP Foundation helps families with affected children and adolescents who need financial assistance to manage and treat the disorder. It also raises funds to further ITP research. The ITP Foundation takes an active role in raising awareness through outreach efforts on both local and national levels. This is done through sporting, social, and educational events.
