THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO DONATED

Did you know that every 5 minutes someone passes away from a blood clot? This is about 274 people per day. More people pass away from blood clots than car accidents, breast cancer and AIDS combined.
Blood clots are not only dangerous but they can impact any one of any age with the healthiest of lifestyles.
In 2015 MAW Charity Events was founded inloving memory of Manu "Ajamu" Williams. Manu was my best friend. He passed away from a blood clot on September 28, 2014. He was only 36 years young. He went to the doctor and he was misdiagnosed. Young, healthy looking people often aren't treated correctly for this serious condition.
MAW Charity Events was developed by me. I use my own money to put on these events. God gave me the passion to want to help others & has guided my path to have the tools, education and resources to make it happen. The goal of MAW Charity Events is to educate people dangers of blood clots one event at a time.
Proceeds will benefit ClotCare.
ClotCare is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charity that strives to help others improve lives by providing both patients and healthcare providers with the most up-to-date information and expert insight on optimal use of antithrombotic and anticoagulant therapy.
