BLOOD SISTERS ON ELLEN
Help Melissa and Kristin raise awareness about ITP. ITP affects 10 times as many people as hemophilia yet no one knows about it. Young kids get bullied and teased because ITP gives them bruises and they cannot engage in childhood activities. Melissa and Kristin want to get on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to help raise awareness. Please share this video with friends, family, and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show facebook page!
