Story

Penny's niece, Nicolette, is organizing the first annual Walk to Stop the Clot in memory of her aunt to help spread awareness about the dangers of blood clots. 

In October of 2018, a knee injury left Penny with limited mobility and she was instructed by her doctor to work from home while in a wheel chair and allow her knee to heal.

A short time later, Penny felt like she had a cold and was having difficulty breathing. She decided to get checked out at a local walk-in clinic, where she was immediately directed to go to the hospital because they were certain she had pulmonary embolism (PE), or blood clot in her lungs. 

The hospital confirmed the PE and quickly put her on blood thinners. But the following evening Penny's husband received a call from the hospital saying that he needed to get there right away. When he walked in there was a team of doctors and nurses trying to resuscitate his wife but unfortunately, Penny passed away that evening. 

Penny's family is dedicated to helping spread awareness about the risks, signs and symptoms of blood clots so that another family will not have to endure such loss.
