The charity AntiCoagulation Europe has launched a campaign Blood Clots Cancer and You to raise awareness of cancer associated thrombosis (CAT).
It is vitally important that both cancer patients and health care professionals are aware of the risk of CAT.
In order to raise awareness a diary video has been developed that helps patients to understand the risks of CAT and what signs and symptoms to look out for and what they should do if they suspect they have a blood clot (CAT).
Over 4000 lives a year are needlessly lost because of cancer associated thrombosis.
Help save some of those lives by encouraging patients to be aware of the risk of CAT and what they can do to help themselves.
The diary video is available below:
