Melanie Bloom's lifesaving mission

Melanie Bloom’s husband was the late NBC correspondent David Bloom, who was killed in the Iraq War in 2003. But it wasnt a bomb that killed him.

Bloom died from a pulmonary embolism, also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT): a blood clot that moved from his leg to his lung.

Melanie is now a spokesperson for the Coalition to Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis. She talks with Soledad this morning about the importance of deep-vein thrombosis awareness.
