This is the month where we step it up a notch and promote our cause of awareness against blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
This is the month when we also celebrate all blood clot survivors and remember those we lost along the way.
Hard to believe how many lives are affected by blood clots every year.
Wonderful to know that many lives are saved from blood clots every year.
Inspiring to read about what blood clot survivors are capable of doing as they overcome the challenges of their condition.
There is no better time of the year to couple the blood clot survivor inspiration with basketball as the fun of March Madness looms in the horizon.
For this month I wanted to bring forward a couple of stories of blood clot survivors that are truly remarkable and worth the read.
The first story comes to us from The Post (THEPOSTATHENS.com) in Athens, OH and it features the story of Katie who will not allow blood clots to slow her down from her love of basketball. You have to read this story because it one that you will remember...
The second story for this month's post also features a basketball player - Alli, who is more than ready to battle her condition and return to the court in order to make a difference for her team. Credit for the article to the DAILYLOCAL.com.
Once again it is good to remember that blood clots can happen to anyone at any time.
It is very important to be aware of the signs and symptoms because they can be the difference between life and death.
STOPTHECLOT.org is a great resource to learn more about what you need to keep in mind so that you can be alert.
Here is hoping that March is great month for all of you.
Certainly the Madness of Basketball is coming but also spring is getting closer so that we can get the CLOT BUSTER #StopTheClot polka-dots truly out there training and racing.
Blood Clot Survivors CAN DO ANYTHING and there is proof here on both of our basketball superstars who, with their stories and play on the court, are inspiring us all.
Thank you fore reading
