My Story

Ten years ago I received a diagnosis that changed my life, immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Basically, my body attacks my platelets, making clotting very challenging. In a moment I went from a healthy kid, to someone bouncing from hospital to hospital, as I tried new treatments for years. ITP has impacted each day of my life since September 2008 through related fatigue, having my spleen removed, and exacerbating any illness or injury. There is currently no cure, and the funding for research is limited for this rare, but serious condition. This December, in support of all those living with ITP, and as a capstone to my collegiate running career, I will be 10 years ago I received a diagnosis that changed my life, immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).

This December, in support of all those living with ITP, and as a capstone to my collegiate running career, I will be running my first marathon. I am going to use this opportunity to raise money to help fund research and bring awareness to ITP.
