Why Share Your Story?

On our Patient Stories page, you’ll find story after story reflecting the personal experiences, words, and emotions from people of all ages, race, and gender. These stories reflect the diversity of our community, and illustrate the undeniable fact that blood clots do not discriminate. The Patient Stories are among the most popular pages on our website. These personal experiences resonate in a way that offers comfort and helps people realize that they are not alone. There are others who have walked the same path or had the same fears. They are given hope in seeing themselves in those who have overcome. It is our goal that in reading these stories, individuals affected by blood clots will realize a greater sense of community — and in sharing your story, you will be empowered to move forward with purpose as you help educate others through your own experience. We hope to see your story here soon!


Guidelines for Writing Your Story

Your story should be about your personal experience with blood clots or clotting disorders. This could mean you personally or your story may reflect the way blood clots have affected your child, partner, friend, parent, sibling, or loved one. Please include as much detail as possible to allow the readers to fully understand and relate to your experience.
