Story

 Anna Frutiger suffered a fatal deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in 2010, just a month after her 23rd birthday.  Anna was not alone.   Approximately 350,000 to 600,000 people get blood clots in the leg (DVT/deep vein thrombosis) or the lung (PE/pulmonary embolism) each year.  As a result of these blood clots, we know that at least 100,000 Americans die each year.  More simply, 274 people in the US will die each day of a PE.  Anna was one of those 274 people on May 20, 2010.  Anna embodied brains, beauty, compassion, athleticism, and as such, seemed the picture of health while she was living her dream of becoming a dentist.  No one expected that a blood clot would end her dream.  Her story gets shared around the world every day.  Her legacy lives on through her story.  It continues to make an impact and save lives.
