THE STORY:

My nephew Paul had his whole life ahead of him. A 19 year old bright, athletic, energetic leader, loved by all who new him especially his parents and family. He was a sophomore engineering student at the University of Buffalo, diagnosed with "asthma" only a few days before he went off to classes at UB one morning and never came back home. He suffered what was ultimately found to be a massive, fatal Pulmonary Thromboembolism that took his life, and took him from all who loved him, and from all who would now never have the chance to meet this wonderful, caring and loving young man. Blood clots, both Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PTE) are much more common and yet quite often more underdiagnosed than we would like. Symptoms are non-specific and yet outcomes can be devastating if not identified and treated aggressively. Common risk factors are known, but often those who develop these clots do not have those risk factors and certainly a healthy and active 19 year old does not raise a red flag for any of them. Raising awareness is the most important thing that can be done to save limbs and lives from DVT and PTE. Medical providers and patients alike have to be aware of the possibility in order to consider performing the necessary tests to diagnose and then be able to treat this potentially devastating problem. I am running this race with my friends Inge and Steve to raise money for "STOP THE CLOT", raise awareness and hopefully spare others the pain and devastation my brother and sister-in-law and our entire extended family have experienced. Thank you so much for your support.
