Almost 900,000 Americans suffer from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) every year.
Of these, about 380,000 develop deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
Nearly 300,000 deaths per year.
Only 50% of those with DVT have symptoms, yet quick, effective treatment is critical
600,000 are affected annually by pulmonary embolism (PE).
1 in 20 Americans are affected by hereditary thrombophillia – an inherited predisposition to blood clots.
52% of hospitalized adults are at risk of dangerous blood clots.
The recurrence rate of venous thomboembolism (VTE) is 30% over 10 years.
I have this avenue along with the triathlon racing and first attempt a marathon to spread the word. There are many avenues out there to get involved. If you need some ideas please let me know because together we can really make a difference as the numbers listed above should not be acceptable to anyone.
