Brian Vickers, a dam fine chap …


The “interesting” thing about being a survivor of a massive PE is the people you meet along the way. A cheery new friend from the good old US of A was able to interview the NASCAR driving legend that (fortunately) “still is” Brian Vickers. Now, I do apologise Brian (and of course Sara) NASCAR is the one that you drive round and round and round and round, very, very, very, very very fast? I played cricket and I only ran very, very, very, very slowly…!

The reality is DVT”s and PE’s can and do happen to anyone. Brian Vickers has taken a huge step and is talking about it and for that we are very grateful.  So back to NASCAR……. No, a huge thank you to Sara for allowing me to use her fantastic interview with Brian, and for Brian to have taken the time to raise awareness of blood clots.
