Blood donations help Hastings girl with bleeding disorder

Doctors diagnosed Bridget Fox, 6, with Immune thrombocytopenia purpura, or ITP, about a year ago during a kindergarten physical. The disorder causes excessive bleeding and bruising.

"She's had eight different blood transfusions. One of them was a platelet transfusion. Then she received medication that has blood products in it," said Tabitha Fox, Bridget's mom.
