Week 2 Update!
March 16, 2017

We’re just over the half-way mark for the Faces of Blood Clots campaign.  As of today, we’ve raised $1,570!  You are all rock stars!   See more

THE STORY:

March is Blood Clot Awareness month.  In honor of this month dedicated to raising awareness of the signs, symptoms and risk factors for blood clots, the National Blood Clot Alliance is sharing stories from survivors and families as part of a virtual fundraising project. Our goal is aimed at highlighting and showcasing just how many people, of all ages, backgrounds and circumstances and affected by blood clots. 

274 people will die from blood clots today.  That means this month alone 8,494 Americans will be killed from a condition that could have likely been prevented.  This already staggering number does not take into account the people who will survive but live with complications.   Blood clots kill more people every year than AIDS, breast cancer and car accidents COMBINED.  It is our mission at NBCA to raise awareness and ultimately reduce this number.  Knowing the signs, symptoms and risk factors saves lives. 

While there are many faces to blood clots, each one is so different.  As you will see in the following stories, blood clots do not discriminate.  Regardless of age, race or gender, we’re all at risk.   No matter how young or physically fit you may be, you can still be affected.  Please take the time to read the stories featured in this campaign and consider donating to the National Blood Clot Alliance to help us continue our mission of advancing the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and clot-provoked stroke.

 

The Facts:

  • The National Blood Clot Alliance, 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.
  • Blood Clots kill more people each year than AIDS, Breast Cancer and motor vehicle accidents combined.
  • An estimated 900,000 Americans are diagnosed with blood clots each year. 100,000 will die.
  • Blood Clots kill one person every 6 minutes
  • Although blood clots can be prevented, fewer than 1 in 4 people know the signs and symptoms, making awareness so important.
  • 274 people will die today from a blood clot, and tomorrow, and the next day.  Every day, 274 Americans will die of a blood clot.
  • Many of these deaths could been prevented with increased awareness and education.  Knowledge is power!
