The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2017

On Saturday, September 30, 2017 the Nashville Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group will host the 2nd Annual Pulmonary Hypertension PHun Walk at 10:00 A.M. at Pinkerton Park in Franklin, TN. There will be a PHun Raffle immediately following the walk.

 

Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a life-threatening illness that causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. The vessels between the heart and the lungs become constricted and the right side of the heart tends fail because it has to work harder to pump the blood through. PH can cause death from heart failure. It is often misdiagnosed as asthma or COPD. It affects men, women and children. There is NO cure.
