BENEFITING: National Blood Clot Alliance
EVENT DATE: Jun 11, 2016
We're celebrating the ONE YEAR anniversaries of my survival from the two leading causes of Sudden Maternal Death and we would love for you to join us!
In June 2015, I was diagnosed with Bilateral Pulmonary Embolisms (PE) when I was 24 weeks pregnant; then in October, I suffered a massive postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) a week after delivering our first child. We know the statistics and they are grim to say the least. We know how blessed we are that my son and I are alive! That is why we will be celebrating our survival each June and October by participating in a run/walk to raise awareness for DVT/PEs and PPH so that others know the signs and can be survivors too.
Join us on "Team Cattell" for our first 5K Walk for Stop The Clot! The 5K is in memory of a man named Michael Scott. While I didn't know him personally, his story hits home after everything we've been through. Michael walked around for 6 months with a DVT in his leg that led to a PE and ultimately cost him his life. We all need to know the risks and the signs.
If you can't join us in NYC for the event, please consider donating to the team to raise funds for the National Blood Clot Alliance's Stop The Clot campaign. Your support means so much!
