As some of you may already know, in December of 2012, I had a very close call with death. An initially misdiagnosed complicated ankle injury sustained while playing soccer resulted in multiple DVTs and bilateral pulmonary embolisms causing an extensive hospital stay and a recovery and rehab period of nearly 12 months. Upon my full recovery, I created a couple of fundraising campaigns tied to a particular race I would participate in to not only raise funds for the National Blood Clot Alliance, but more importantly to raise awareness of the dangers of DVTs, PEs and blood clots in general. I now hope to support this important cause year round by creating this space that I will be promoting and hating on my blog and other social media channels. Please consider supporting this important cause as it either already has or will affect someone in your immediate circle of friends and family. Truly any amount makes a difference. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
