Rare Resilience – Immune Thrombocytopenia / ITP
Barbara was just a little girl when she first learned that it was very dangerous to suffer a bruise. She was told she was different from the other children and that she needed to be terribly careful at all times to not get hurt. Candace had weird markings on her legs that led to her being rushed to the ER with her life in the balance. Both Florida women share the same diagnosis: Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP), a rare autoimmune disorder where blood does not clot normally. Today, both Barbara and Candace are at the forefront of providing support to other ITP patients.
