DVT AWARENESS AND EDUCATION
In 2006, Bonnie was diagnosed with life-threatening blood clots in her left leg and both of her lungs, a condition known as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)/PE (Pulmonary Embolus). Since surviving her health scare, she has made it her mission to educate Americans about this largely-preventable disease that affects more than 2 million people each year.
