My brother, Devon, is battling ITP (Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura). Over the past year of being diagnosed with this (which the doctors had expected to go away on its own within 6 months) Devon has had to be a restricted from playing sports, going to school and doing the things he loves. He has had many blood infusions and other treatments, none of which have made any lasting impact on his condition. The next step is major surgery to remove his spleen. The costs of transportation, medical care, and the amount of days my mom has had to take off to travel the 2 hours to the nearest hospital able to treat Devon is mounting and adding a lot more stress to an already stressful situation. My mom is a beautiful, strong woman but lately has been crushed by the pressure on her. I'm trying to get this to as many people as I can to show her that she is not alone and that things will get better. Please, even if it is only a few dollars or just a share to more friends, take the time to read more about his story and consider donating to help cover the costs.
Thank you so much for your time!
Time goes on, whether or not you chase it, so why waste the energy?
