One person dies every six minutes from a blood clot. That's 274 daily on average.
I am a survivor of a near fatal pulmonary embolism in 2017 and have an aggressive, inherited blood clotting disorder. It is obvious to me that the general public lacks the knowledge needed to help keep blood clots at bay. Please help me spread the word! I would be grateful if my Facebook family could donate just a few bucks each which would easily get us to the low goal amount of $1,000 that I have set. Proceeds will be going to the NBCA for this worldwide event!
More than 100,000 people die each year in the US due to blood clots. This is more than AIDS, breast cancer, and car accidents combined. And one in four deaths worldwide are the result of conditions caused by blood clots, making it a leading global cause of death and disability.
March is Blood Clot Awareness Month. To celebrate, I’m participating in Climb for Clots, a virtual stair climbing event designed to raise awareness and funds for the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA). Our goal is to climb 100,000 stairs for the 100,000+ lives lost each year due to deadly blood clots.
Blood clots do not discriminate by age, gender, ethnicity or race. Quite often, they're misdiagnosed. No matter how young or physically fit you may be, you can still be affected.
Your charitable gift will help NBCA continue thier life saving mission to advance prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots. Together, we can save lives!
