    Re: mom refused treatment for ITP is she dying

    Hi there. by ITP, are you referring to Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura? This is not a deadly disease, but it can cause internal bleeding and a lack of proper clotting of the blood.

    Why is she not going for treatment? What is she saying?
