“My name is Jen. I am 37 and from Dublin. I am a carer for adults with disabilities.
I was always active all throughout my life. I was also always a big girl. I carried weight throughout my teenage years and adulthood. I have also always had bad Varicose Veins.
In 2009 at the age of 25, I had them removed and that is when I got my first blood clot in my right leg. I was treated with blood thinners for 3 months.”
At RBR Active™ we are incredibly proud to name Thrombosis Ireland as our dedicated charity for 2020. The work that Thrombosis Ireland have undertaken over the past few years has been nothing but monumental. In 2019 the charity ran the “Stop the Clot” roadshow, taking a wonderful double decker Road Master bus around Ireland, and holding awareness meetings, Q&A sessions and actively engaging with both medical professionals as well as patients and their families. As they toured round Ireland, turning up at hospitals, doctors’ surgeries, Gaelic football stadiums and market squares, they were met with such superb support and encouragement.
