Dizzy Spells Could Warn of deadly Blood Clot

I had the pleasure of meeting Christina at the recent National Thrombosis Day (organised by Lifeblood) When you reach the sad old age of 47 (in my defence I was only 44 when I popped my clogs) you have at least done a few things. Christina’s attitude, strength and determination was inspiring. Every year, Pulmonary Embolisms causes over 30,000 deaths – official estimates suggest as many as 25,000 people die from preventable blood clots that develop in hospital.

Christina Perkins, long time supporter and fundraiser for Lifeblood, has recounted her story of pulmonary embolism in the Daily Mail today.
