Steven was diagnosed with ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura) in December 2012 when he was just 4 years old. ITP is a bleeding disorder where the body kills its own platelets which in turn can cause internal bleeding and bruising (just to name a few). A healthy platelet zone for a child is anywhere from 350,000-450,000; when Steven was diagnosed he only had 2,000. Even though his doctors said that ITP in a child regularly only last 6 months to a year, Steven is still considered to have chronic ITP almost 6 years later. We are lucky and blessed that his platelets have stabilized on their own and he ranges between 90,000-100,000. This ‘high’ count means he can play certain sports, ride a bike, and just be a normal kid. Steven loves basketball and riding his bike. He is a very athletic boy who loves being outdoors. 

Our family is so very lucky to have found the BDFW shortly after Steven’s diagnosis. They are truly like a second family to us. Steven has grown and thrived the past 5 years in learning to except and cope with a bleeding disorder by going to BDFW events like Camp I-Vy and Backpacks and Bleeders. He sees and interacts with kids just like him that understand what having a medical condition is like. 

Please help me to build awareness for bleeding disorders while supporting the BDFW's mission to support research . Every donation counts & together we can make a difference. Thank you!
