The American Blood Clot Association: A Non-Profit Blood Clot Charity
The American Blood Clot Association is fighting every day to educate people on the signs and symptoms of blood clots.
We must significantly reduce the number of blood clot deaths per year.
Currently, in the United States, there is a low blood clot, DVT, pulmonary embolism and clot related stroke awareness level…our non-profit blood clot charity is going to change that!
Our Goal is to Reduce Blood Clot Deaths Per Year
