Sincere Condolences

by Ruth Christofferson
(United Kingdom)

May I offer my sincere condolences on the death of your son. my daughter died of a flight-related DVT in 2000 - her death brought much publicity around the world - although her death was flight-related the underlying cause was sitting still - until a tragedy happens people are unaware of the consequences of sitting still - I applaud you for going public with your grief and I trust your campaign will help you to cope with your loss. May I please make a suggestion...speaking to classes in school would be a good way of letting people know of the dangers (if you can have access)- until recently I worked in a secondary school and I spoke to many classes about sitting still and pupils sitting on their feet.I appreciate how difficult this is for you but I trust you can gain comfort knowing what you are doing can prevent this happening to another family. Regards

Tribute to Ruth Christofferson
by: David Staniforth

Thank you Ruth, I have copied what you originally posted on the recover from grief website.
I first compared what had happened to Christopher to thrombosis related to air travel, I knew about this because of media news and when I have flown Long haul the airlines now always advise you about exercise and keeping hydrated.
During research for this website I came across archive articles which show that through your work following the untimely death of your daughter from flight related DVT this has now become common knowledge and people all over the world benefit every day thanks to you.
It is my hope that I too can influence the Gaming industry to make sure that advice and alerts are on all Online Games, and until this happens I will be campaigning to bring awareness, It is my hope I can have your strength and resolve to achieve the awareness you have achieved.
