‘For Every Day in May’ Wall of Dedications

Blood clots kill an average of 274 Americans every single day, so for every day in May that means 8,494 lives will be lost. We established the goal of raising $8,494 for NBCA in May to represent each of these lives lost.

There are many special days of recognition throughout the month of May, such as Mother’s Day, National Hospital Week, Brothers and Sisters Day, Women’s Health Week, and Memorial Day. Whether you donated to celebrate a survivor, remember a loved one, or show your appreciation for someone who took part in your care or the care of a loved one – thank you for your generosity.
