Welcome Message

Caroline KruseWelcome to the Platelet Disorder Support Association Web site!

Whether you are newly diagnosed or caring for a child, spouse or loved one with ITP or another platelet disorder, you've come to the right place. PDSA is your number one resource for education, advocacy, research, and support.

When I was diagnosed with ITP in 2000, I felt scared, anxious and very much alone. In those first few months, I was unaware of PDSA. Had I known about this wonderful organization, I might have made different decisions about managing my illness. At the very least, I would have had the peace of mind of knowing that there was someone I could talk to who understood what I was going through, emotionally as well as physically.

PDSA is here for you 24/7. Whether it is on the Internet or through our many publications, annual and regional meetings, local support groups, name exchange program or personal counseling, it is our goal to be able to offer patients suffering with ITP and other platelet disorders answers to questions with the most up-to-date information, a personal connection to others, and a reassuring voice.

Thank you for visiting our Web site -- we are here for you. We hope that you will visit often and consider joining our group.

Caroline Kruse
Executive Director
