THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

On Sunday, November 3rd of this year I will fulfill a lifelong dream of running in the New York City Marathon.  In the process, I wish to spread awareness about a life-threatening condition that often goes undetected.  As a survivor of pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs), I have partnered with the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) and with your help, hope to reach my fundraising goal of $2,500.

NBCA 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.  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. 

A deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot typically in one leg that can break loose and travel to the lungs as a pulmonary embolism (PE), a medical emergency that can result in death in about 1 of every 3 people with PE.  It is important to know your risk for DVT and PE.  Some risk factors include a hospital or nursing home stay, major surgery, trauma, hip or knee replacement, obesity, older age, immobility, or family history of clots or clotting disorders.  Know the signs and symptoms.  Safe use of blood thinners is key to treat DVT/PE and to prevent stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation.  NBCA is a patient advocacy group to promote awareness of risk, prevention and treatment of blood clots.

Through programs that build public awareness, educate patients and healthcare professionals, and promote supportive public and private sector policies, NBCA works diligently to spread the word about blood clots.

Thank you,

Susan Graham
