Monthly Tree Lighting for September

Posted on August 27th, 2018 Comments Off

The tree is lit in purple to symbolize National ITP Awareness Month with the supporting foundation being Platelet Disorder Support Association (PDSA). ITP is an autoimmune disease in which the body mounts an immune attack on platelets (a component of blood). Beth Siegelbaum who is the secretary of the foundation says, “PDSA was founded to ensure patients would no longer travel the ITP journey feeling confused, lost, frightened and alone. As an empowered community, we look ahead with great optimism for immune thrombocytopenia.”
