Write Your Blood Clot Story

Submit Your Blood Clot Story in Writing

On our Patient Stories page, you’ll find a collection of narratives from a wide variety of blood clot patients. Our goal is to offer comfort and hope to those affected by blood clots through the experiences of those who’ve walked a similar path. In sharing your story, we hope you’ll be empowered to move forward as you help educate others through your own experience.

Guidelines for Writing Your Story

Your story should be about your personal experience with blood clots or clotting disorders. This means you could share your own experience, or that of 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.

Please allow 6-8 weeks for us to publish and share your story.
