THE STORY:

National Blood Clot Alliance wrote -

Blood clots affect people — people from all walks of life — and no one person is any less important than another.  It’s difficult to look at the numbers below, and not think of the individuals — their families, their friends — and not ask oneself, “Could I be at risk for a blood clot?”  The answer most certainly is, “Yes, everyone is affected by blood clots.”  Blood clots don’t discriminate. They can just as easily affect athletes as well as those less physically fit.  They affect men and women; rich and poor – blood clots do not discriminate.  

Tragically, too many lives are affected by blood clots, and too many lives are lost because public awareness about life-threatening blood clots is so low.  Study after study have shown that fewer than a 1 in 4 people have any recognition of blood clots or their signs and symptoms. 

Consider this:  
On Average, 274 People Die Every Day from Blood Clots

They can just as easily affect athletes as well as those less physically fit.  They affect men and women; rich and poor – blood clots do not discriminate.  

Take a look at profiles of people of all walks of life who have been affected. Some of our stories are stories of survival – often against great odds of misdiagnosis or simply being unaware of the signs, symptoms or risk factors.  Others are stories told by family members whose relative’s lives could not be saved. All have asked us to share their story in raising awareness of the impact of the public health challenge imposed by blood clots.
