Thank you for your interest in Walk to Stop the Clot Los Angeles, a fun event to support those who have suffered from, or have been affected by, blood clots and clotting disorders. Your participation will help us to raise funds and awareness about the risks, signs and symptoms of blood clots.
This event is free and open to the public - but of course we encourage donations! Donations from you and your donors will be used immediately to advance the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots.
Blood clots (often called DVT - Deep Vein Thrombosis and PE - Pulmonary Embolism) and clot-provoked strokes are very serious medical conditions. The Surgeon General estimates that blood clots affect as many as 600,000 Americans, resulting in 100,000 deaths each year. More fatalities are caused by blood clots each year than breast cancer, AIDS, and auto accidents combined! In fact, blood clots are also the number one cause of preventable hospital deaths.
There is cause for serious concern, but there is also good news. Many blood clots can be prevented by understanding the risk factors, signs and symptoms. Your generosity and participation helps the NBCA get the message out that together, we are impacting patients and saving lives.
