2018 TTP Day

The Answering TTP Community is Fundraising Together to Help Answer TTP.

International TTP Day is Saturday, September 15, 2018.

Support the Community. Donate to a particular participant or make a general donation.

Overall Event Goal: 




Answering TTP Foundation's International TTP Day brings local TTP communities together on a global scale to raise funds to support research, education and support. Participants use their custom fundraising page to collect funds for their event. Registrants either walk or fundraise another way to be part of this international movement bringing small communities together to be part of something big!

This event was previously called the Walk to Answer TTP Together. Participating by walking (as in previous years) is still a great way to take part. Registration has closed. To enquire about late registration opportunities email events@answeringTTP.org.

This is Your Opportunity to Enable TTP Research

such as...
We will apply advanced imaging tools and evaluate blood markers in 20 TTP patients. Through this study, we will have a better understanding of the disease burden and its structural impact on the heart and the brain.        
--- Dr. Shih-Han Susan Huang, Scientist, Lawson Research Institute, London, ON

What is TTP?

A TTP, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, diagnosis is scary and complex. Many patients have never heard of this 3 letter acronym before, nor have they any idea as to its ramifications. TTP is a medical emergency causing small blood clots and potentially fatal complications. Early diagnosis is key to survival. TTP can strike anyone, at any stage of life. Three in one million people are diagnosed each year. Symptoms include: fatigue, fever, diarrhea, chest pain, bleeding, dark urine, confusion, headaches, visual changes, bruising, purpura, petechiae.
