THE STORY:

Location Griffith Park, Los Angeles
Start time  9:00 AM

Visit http://stoptheclotla.webs.com for additional details

Hey!  My name is Erin.  I suffered my first leg clot at 20 years old, and then my 2nd clot, which traveled to my lung, a week after I had my son, at 27 years old.  I am very lucky to be alive to watch my son grow up.  Blood clots do not discriminate...they can affect anyone, at any age, healthy or not.  Please help spread awareness!  Knowing the signs, symptoms, and risk factors will save thousands of lives.  Thanks for visiting my page!

 

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.
