February Athlete of the Moth

In this case we are talking about a former athlete but nevertheless someone who is very much involved in sports today as he was during his playing days.

For this month I decided to feature someone who is very prominent in the world of baseball and someone I would love to have a pleasure to meet but it is highly unlikely that I will get chance unless I can hit homeruns over the "green monster" at a tune of one per game... can you guess who?

Let me introduce you to Mr. Terry Francona, manager of the Boston Red Sox and survivor of two Pulmonary Emolism (PE) episodes, which you know are a consequence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or as we know it blood clots in the veins. It is amazing to see that blood clots can strike anyone at any given time regardless of your background and curent lifestyle.
In my opinion it is very inspiring to see Mr. Francona overcome the challenges of suffering from two clotting episodes and go on to take on his job and be very successful at it.

If you are interested in learning more about Mr. Francona the following ARTICLE in ESPN THE MAGAZINE was one that I found every intersting. Of course you can also found out more about him HERE as well.
I appreciate this man's history and I take a great deal of pressure to share with you if you did not already know about him. I could not believe it when I first heard about it...
How could it be to see him someday on one of our polka-dot STOP THE CLOT shirts...? Who knows someday our paths may cross again and I can make one available for him along with some wristbands. Can you imagine the STOP THE CLOT colors during the World Series... Dreaming is soo easy...

Thanks for Reading,

The Clot Buster
