Special Offer: Support the 2015 Walk to Answer TTP Together + Win a Joanie Tote

TTP Walk

On September 19, 2015, I am joining the Answering TTP Foundation in their annual Walk to Answer TTP Together to help raise TTP awareness. I lost my mother to the rare auto-immune blood disorder, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, TTP (more on her story here), so this cause is extremely close to my heart. With no known cure, patients are living each day in fear of another relapse that could end in irreversible damage to the brain, heart and/or kidneys. Your donation will help us to raise funds for much needed international research and care.

With each donation of $20.00 or more, you will be entered to win a Be Fancy & Fabulous Joanie Tote! I collaborated with fashion illustrator Jennifer Lilya on the design, and named Joanie Totes after my beautiful mother, who I affectionately called “Joanie”. The mission of Joanie Totes is to ‘raise TTP awareness…one bag at a time’.

Visit our Walking for Joan team page {here} to make a donation.  Thank you in advance for supporting us!
