THE STORY:

People choose their charities based on their life experiences involving people they love.  On 3/31/11 my brother, Ken, passed away from a pulmonary embolus from a blood clot (aka Deep Venous Thrombous aka DVT) which migrated from behind his knee to his lung.  He left behind a wife and 6 children.  It rocked our world and changed everything.  In trying to make sense of this new reality, I stumbled upon Stop the Clot.  This organization embraced me and gave me new hope to sort through science.  All 4 of my brothers have Leiden Factor V deficiency as does my mother.  I do not.   It is a genetic trait that we all need to be aware of including my 19 nieces and and nephews.  Having worked for years in the medical field, I am amazed at how many people do not have an understanding of how common blood clot issues are and how life threatening they can be.  I am running to raise awareness and money for research in MEMORY of my dear brother KEN.   Please help me STOP THE CLOT!

Thank you for helping us Stop The Clot!

Chances are you, or someone you know has had a blood clot.  It may have been called a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or a pulmonary embolism (PE), but nonetheless, in everyday terms, it was a blood clot.  And, there's a good chance it was very serious, maybe even fatal.  In the state of New York alone, the Surgeon General estimates there are over 6300 deaths per year due to DVTs and PEs.  That’s more than 17 people dying each day – just in New York.  You can check out the stats for your state, by clicking here.

NBCA works on behalf of people who may be susceptible to blood clots, including, but not limited to, people with clotting disorders, atrial fibrillation, cancer, traumatic injury, and risks related to surgery, lengthy immobility, child birth and birth control. 

Stop the Clot is a 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. 

So, thank you for supporting our important cause! Together, we'll reach the finish line for the marathon and hopefully, for blood clots.
