Here’s how you can help:

  1. Send an electronic photo and one or two brief paragraphs about your experience in living with and managing your blood clot.
  2. Complete, sign and submit the CDC consent and release form.  Click here to get the release form.
  3.  Email everything to :  Cindy Sayers, CDC Health Communications Specialist at csayers@cdc.gov
