National Blood Clot Alliance's Fundraiser:

Blood Clot Awareness Month

THE STORY:


March is Blood Clot Awareness Month!

The statistics surrounding blood clots are alarming.  On average, 274 Americans die EVERY DAY from blood clots - that's one American every six minutes. 

Blood clots do not discriminate by age, gender, ethnicity or race.  They can affect anyone — from infants and young children to teens, young moms and dads, those in middle age or senior citizens.  Across the country and around the world, elite athletes, public servants, musicians, doctors, nurses, business associates and many wonderful people from all walks of life are affected. We are all at risk.

The good news is - blood clots can be prevented! Knowledge is power, and by knowing the signs, symptoms and risk factors we can save lives.  The National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, voluntary health organization dedicated to advancing the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and clot-provoked stroke.  To learn more about what to look out for, visit us at www.stoptheclot.org

Below are the stories and firsthand accounts of patients who've been affected by blood clots.  Each experience is different - from the symptoms to the risk factors to the outcomes, making each story so important.  These patients have made it their mission to raise awareness and funds for the National Blood Clot Alliance by sharing their own person stories in hopes that no one will have to experience what they did.

If you are interested in having your story featured for Blood Clot Awareness Month, please contact Caitlin Augustine at caugustine@stoptheclot.org
