This year's Walk, sponsored by Analog Century Management and Invus Financial Advisors LLC, once again honors the memory of Michael Scott. Mike passed away unexpectedly in September of 2013 at the age of 43 from a pulmonary embolism (PE), the result of an undetected blood clot in his leg (DVT) which traveled to his lungs. Mike was suffering from health problems related to the blood clot for six months. He went from doctor to doctor trying to get answers but no one couldfind the cause. Mikes family believes that if more information on dangerous blood clots was available, his would have been detected and his life could have been saved.
Mikes sister Lisa has become an advocate for the National Blood Clot Alliance, raising awareness to prevent other families from going through what her family has been through. Walkers will travel across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn, to connect the boroughs in which Mike worked, lived and thrived.
Please set up a fundraising page today and share it with your family, friends, and colleagues. Raise $75 or more and you'll get a special Stop The Clot t-shirt. If you are unable to join us, you can set up a fundraising page and be a virtual walker, its a great way to support the important work of NBCA.
Your charitable gift will help the National Blood Clot Alliance continue our life saving mission to advance the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and clot-provoked stroke.
Together, we can save lives!
