Most important of all the opportunities is the one of meeting people and their personal stories.
I am extremely lucky to have met "virtually" March's Athlete of the Month Rebekah Bradford Plath and through her I've been exposed and virtually introduced to other people who are also doing very impressive things as they related to create awareness about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
If you can please take a look at the following organization which as described on their site does the following...
"The Garnet Foundation was founded in February 2011 by Natalie Smoliak. As a Minnesota based non-profit organization, The Garnet Foundation raises awareness and provides informational and educational resources to those affected by non-cancerous genetic blood conditions and those who would like to learn more about these conditions. The foundation provides scholarships to students with a connection to genetic blood disorders."
