Canoeing for a Cause
This trip is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Julie
Sweet. With our efforts we plan to raise money, as well as
awareness, for Pulmonary Embolisms (PE).
A PE is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The blockage
usually is caused by a blood clot that travels to the lung
from a vein in the leg. PE most often is a complication of a
condition called deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
In DVT, blood clots form in the deep veins of the body, most
often in the legs. These clots can break free, travel through
the bloodstream to the lungs, and block an artery. The exact
number of people affected by DVT and PE is unknown. Estimates
suggest these conditions affect 300,000 to 600,000 people in
the United States each year.
If left untreated, about 30 percent of patients who have
PE will die. Most of those who die do so within the ﬁrst few
hours of the event; my mom’s life was taken almost instantly,
while she was asleep on a Sunday morning this past June.
How You Can Help
We are looking to raise $1 per mile of river, somewhere in
the ballpark of $2,500. All of the proceeds will be donated to
the Mayo Clinic out of Rochester, Minnesota.
Mayo is conducting research on pulmonary embolisms. Scientists are speciﬁcally trying to answer why
the risk of pulmonary thrombosis increases with infection and in women as they age, perhaps due to
menopause and decreased estrogen.
Mayo uses an interdisciplinary research team approach that includes the expertise of physiologists,
hematologist, biochemists, clinical cardiologists and cardiac surgeons. The goal is to better understand
the underlying cause to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies directed towards reducing
pulmonary embolisms and associated events.
Please consider making your pledge today.
Donations payable to The Mayo Clinic can be sent directly to the Mayo Clinic’s Dept. of Development
at 200 First St. SW, Rochester, MN 55905 or to: Camden Sweet, 1515 East Tracy St., Appleton, WI 54915.
Donations may also be dropped off at the Clintonville Chronicle, 10 N. Main St., Clintonville, WI 54929.
