Sean Putt was diagnosed with Chronic ITP in August 2012. Chronic ITP, (Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura) is a chronic autoimmune disease that results in a decline of platelets and the potential for uncontrolled external and internal bleeding, including brain hemorrhage.

Last day of second grade Sean walked into a pole at school. His eyes were black and blue for weeks. We took him to the dr. We were told it was nothing to worry about. The bruises just would not go away so I took again, The doctor looked at him. Then after seeing a rash he had we had to go get blood work,We were sent to Nationwide Childrens hospital 30 mins after bloodwork.

The average count for platlets is 250-450 thousand. Seans Platelets were at 6000. 

Sean has not responded to any of the treatment plans that there are, He has had numerous IVIG's, Chemo, Winro we have tryed everything.

The past 2 years the family has been driving Weekly to Columbus for Sean to get a study drug treatment, With not responding to that treatment the family has to look for a new treatment plan. They will be trying new medicine. This is a new drug that is not on the approved drug list with the insurance company, This Medicine is very costly.. We are hoping that Sean will be able to keep a higher platlet count with taking this medicine.

Sean will have to start with 3 months of pills. If the pills work successful than he will be allowed into a program grant that then will help cover the cost of his medication.

This Campain is help the family cover the cost needed for the 3 months of the prescription they must pay at cost.
