THE STORY:

The Chi Omicron Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated based in Virginia Beach, VA will be partnering with Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Center to host a senior prom for their residents in order to raise blood clot awareness. One of our chapter members was diagnosed with two blood clots in early October 2016 and it is our goal to spread the word about the symptoms, prevention methods, and the inspirational work the National Blood Clot Alliance is doing to help communities. 


The Facts

*The National Blood Clot Alliance, a 501(c)(3), 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. 

*Blood Clots kill more people each year than AIDS, Breast Cancer and motor vehicle accidents combined. An estimated 900,000 Americans are diagnosed with blood clots each year. 100,000 will die. 

*Blood Clots kill one person every 6 minutes 

*Although blood clots can be prevented, fewer than 1 in 4 people know the signs and symptoms, making awareness so important. 

*274 people will die today from a blood clot, and tomorrow, and the next day. Every day, 274 Americans will die of a blood clot. 

*Many of these deaths could been prevented with increased awareness and education. Knowledge is power!

Being diagnosed with 2 blood clots was a difficult moment in my life...BUT God saw me through. That experience was not about me, it was about sharing my story to with my loved ones and community. Blood Clot Awareness will forever be apart of my purpose and I pray that I am able to touch at least one life. 4 months ago

My baby was induced due to Oligo and sudden weight loss. When she was born, a giant blood clot was found in her umbilical cord. If it had not been for my amniotic fluid being low, my baby could have died because there was no way to find the blood clot. Thanks for bringing awareness to the sudden danger blood clots can create. 5 months ago
