Hi all.... yesterday I had the opportunity to see and talk to my cousin (paternal) who I rarely see. We both had our 13 year old daughters with us who were meeting for the first time. At one point we started to talk about my daughters health. I didn't even need to say the condition before my cousin said "ITP?". I was so shocked as most people have never even heard of it. She then explained that her daughter had been diagnosed with it at 8 but now seemed to have come out the other end. It was such a relief to talk to someone who understand the worries we have. Is there a genetic link?
Would really like to hear your thoughts on this. Many thanks .
