I am delighted to join Team Stop the Clot in NYC and fundraise for this important cause that is so close to my heart!
I have been a part of NBCA since it’s Founding, serving as an original Board member. I became involved due to my own diagnosis of thrombophilia which preceded my training in genetic counseling. During my terms on he Board and later the Medical Advisory Committee, I had the opportunity to meet so many people and families struck by blood clots, and those with familial risk. I am so proud to see the progress that has been made in providing educational resources, increasing awareness, providing support, and helping advance public policy and prevention of blood clots. I am proud to point patients and families to the valuable tools on the website, and know the women’s health campaign specifically has saved lives. I also know individuals who have received an early diagnosis of DVT/PE because they knew the signs thanks to NBCA, and therefore took their symptoms seriously and advocated for appropriate diagnosis and treatment. I could not be more thrilled to support NBCA’s efforts and mission. Thank you for joining me!
Oh and PS- I am also the wife of the self-proclaimed clotbuster triathlete who started this whole campaign 😉
