: My father died of TTP in 1992. And I am not very familiar with the disease as I was only 16 when he died and I have alot of unanswered questions. Is this disease hereditary? My fathers sister also died of this disease. If anyone could give me any info or answer my question it would be greatly appreciated.
: Hi there... I have TTP myself and have not heard of it being hereditary at all. In fact everyone that I have heard of that also has this disease are the only ones in their own families affected. I have a lot of information on the disease if you would like some, and also am starting a support group for sufferers and families of people with TTP. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to talk.
