Blood clots kill approximately 274 people per day. Every six minutes someone dies from a blood clot. Amazingly, blood clots kill more people than AIDS, breast cancer and traffic accidents combined in the U.S.
Fortunately, a Lake Travis local is doing something to help.
Kara King is a mother, a wife, and serves on the Bee Cave City Counsel. She is also a blood clot survivor. In September 2010 she survived a near fatal blood clot — a deep vein thrombosis in her femoral vein of her left leg stretching from her ankle to her belly button. Kara was not expected to survive … but miraculously did.
