A Disease She Can Deal With
Nicole had thrombotic thrombocytopenia purpura (TTP), which is an autoimmune disease that creates blood clots all over the body. Blood clots are not something to mess around with, and Nicole was told that this condition can become fatal. In order to stop her symptoms and to stop the disease from developing, they admitted her to the hospital where she received plasma transfusions for days.
