The Directors of Answering TTP Foundation are committed to changing the prognosis for TTP patients by leveraging their skill sets in support of the Foundation and its initiatives. During the growth phase of the organization, the number of Directors has been kept small to ensure flexibility to leverage every opportunity  for rapid yet sustainable expansion.
