Knowing that you are not alone, can make such a difference. Understanding what others have experienced and things that have helped – or challenged, along the way.

If you would like to offer your support by recording and sharing your account please contact jo@thrombosisuk.org for further information.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the concern this has caused to many people with a history of blood clots, we would welcome hearing from individuals who have made a good recovery from Covid-19 but who either had a blood clot as a result of being severely ill and hospitalised due to Covid-19, or who have a medical history of thrombosis, developed Covid-19 and made a good recovery. If you were willing to share your experience it would be extremely reassuring for others with a medical history of thrombosis. Thank you.

Samantha’s Story

Samantha’s death was avoidable and her mother, Jane, wants to tell Samantha’s story to make women aware of the risk of thrombosis during and after pregnancy.

Abigail's Story

My name is Abigail, and I am 22 years old. Two years ago, in March 2020, I was diagnosed with a Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST).

Thrombosis UK Ambassador - Dawn

Our thoughts and love are with Dawn’s family on the sad news of Dawn’s death.

After diagnosis of a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) Dawn made contact with Thrombosis UK.

We need to think thrombosis, not age.

In Dec 2017 I was hit by a car, mainly soft tissue damaged, but a few weeks later I was experiencing pain in the back of my right leg just below the knee, this is where I had caught it on a wall or branch part of the bush I was pushed into by the car.
