Walking toward a cure

The TTP Awareness Walk called Walk to Answer TTP Together, was held across Canada on Sept. 19. Locally, walkers raised $6,300 for TTP research. Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare disorder of the blood-coagulation system, causing extensive microscopic clots to form in the small blood vessels throughout the body. The small blood clots, called thrombi, can damage many organs including the kidneys, heart and brain. Patients such as Rhonda Keay, who organized the local walk, suffer from TTP and live each day in fear of another relapse which could end in irreversible damage to the brain, heart and/or kidneys. With no known cure for TTP, patients are losing their battle with TTP due to lack of awareness and understanding of the disorder, which affects one in three million people. Keay thanks family, friends, co-workers, and the community of High Prairie for supporting her and a worthwhile cause.
