The mission of BCRN is to create a community where survivors, recovering victims, families, friends, loved ones and advocates can come together to find encouragement, empowerment, enrichment and education to aid in the fight against the occurrence and devastating effects of blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE).

Surviving and recovering from a blood can be not only difficult but lonely, as patients are often misunderstood, misjudged and mislabeled.

BCRN is here to remind you that you are not alone in your struggles.

With our stories, posts and information we hope to build a community based on mutual understanding, awareness, and undeniable belief that there is hope for recovery while still celebrating our differences in diagnosis, treatment and lifestyles that make us so unique to begin with.

As part of the BCRN mission we seek to…

… Educate others about the signs, symptoms, risk facts, dangers and effects of blood clots, dvt and pe; including, but not limited to, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and recovery.

… Encourage others to continue questioning, recovering, learning and living because although they may for some time, blood clots do not have to ruin lives forever. There is hope.

… Enrich the lives of others by creating a safe environment where we can discuss, share and communicate to help each other as we move through recovery.

… Empower others to not only understand what happened to themselves, their loved ones or their friends, but to serve as health advocates in their communities and to raise awareness about blood clots.
