Please join us at The JETTY on Saturday, November 4th at 6:00 PM to celebrate Jimmy’s life and help raise awareness of this silent killer. A $10 cash donation will be required at the door in lieu of an entrance fee.
Enjoy the raffle basket fun, including baskets from Wicked Pissah Basket and Yankee Candle and more, and the chance to win the Patriots Prize Pack or other big prizes. All proceeds will go directly to the National Blood Clot Alliance to benefit their mission – advancing the prevention, early diagnosis and successful treatment of life-threatening blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and clot-provoked stroke.
Jimmy Sperguiro was a 40 year-old lifelong resident of Marshfield Massachusetts.
On July 3, 2014 Jimmy was taken from this world by one of the most silent and dangerous killers – a blood clot. A pulmonary embolism stole him from his family, friends, and loved ones decades before his time. He was a Dad, Son, Brother, Uncle, Companion, Friend and so much more to so many.
Jimmy was by far one of the kindest, warmest and most selfless people the world has ever had the honor of knowing. Jimmy was a simple and ordinary man. This is what made Jimmy extraordinary. If you needed your car fixed at midnight, Jimmy was there by 12:01 with a smile on his face and a toolbox by his side. If you needed your fence painted at 2am, Jimmy was there at your door with warmth in his eyes and a paintbrush in his hand. If you needed a 4am Wal-Mart run because you couldn’t sleep either, Jimmy wished you a “Good morning” and had a hot coffee ready for you. Jimmy fixed it, moved it, painted it, drove it, built it, comforted, or simply listened for a countless number of people whose lives were touched so deeply by these acts of kindness and the love in his heart.
Every day of Jimmy’s life was a challenge that he embraced. All Jimmy ever really wanted at the end of each day was to make the people he loved happy and proud. Jimmy was a good man with a heart so big that it filled whatever room he was in. Jimmy was a simple and ordinary man. And this IS what made Jimmy extraordinary.
Every day, 274 people die of blood clots. That’s 274 deaths daily that can be prevented. The National Blood Clot Alliance and The Friends of Jimmy have teamed up to raise awareness and funds for one of the most underdiagnosed killers in society today – blood clots.
- Blood Clots kill more people each year than AIDS, Breast Cancer and motor vehicle accidents combined.
- Blood Clots kill one person every 6 minutes
- Although blood clots can be prevented, fewer than 1 in 4 people know the signs and symptoms, making awareness so important.
- Knowledge is power!
