Thrombosis UK means so much to my family. Both my uncle and gran passed away due to undiagnosed clots, before I suffered a DVT myself at only 18yrs old. This then led to my diagnosis of having Factor V Leiden along with my mum and brother. Fast forward to 2017, my mum suffered an extremely large pulmonary embolism, but was lucky enough to survive due to the speed and knowledge of the doctors and nurses who treated her.
Thrombosis is one of the biggest killers in the UK, we need to all raise awareness to help spot the signs before its too late! The aim of Thrombosis UK is to raise awareness and educate everyone about the dangers of thrombosis and how to prevent it, as well as fund research aimed at filling the gaps that exist in current medical knowledge.
