ITP Parents Teleconference Group


Jody Shy

Meeting Dates:

September 18, 2019
November 12, 2019

Meeting Details: 7:00 pm Eastern time.
  The kids will be on the call for the first 30 minutes getting a chance to talk with each other about ITP and life (this is something that kids thoroughly enjoy).  After the Kids Call, a Pediatric Hematologist will join the call to answer general ITP questions for the parents.  Once the doctor leaves the call, it will be time for parent to parent support and discussion.  Please contact Jody Shy to get on the call and join the group (this group is predominately parents of kids with ITP) and to get the call in information!

ITP Ambassador

ITP patient Ayla Charness was chosen as the 2011 Children's Miracle Network Colorado Champion.  This was a great opportunity for Ayla to spread the word about ITP.  In October 2011 she took a trip to Washington D.C. to meet with congressmen to get support for child health care and bring awareness about the research needs for ITP.

The video below is one that Children's Miracle Network put together to show at fundraisers and other national events.  It does a great job of telling her story along with bringing awareness to ITP.
