THE STORY:

 Pulmonary hypertension is a very rare, under-diagnosed and often misdiagnosed disease. The disease causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. This makes it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen. This causes potentially life-threatening consequences such as right heart failure. When diagnosed in time, treatments can be administered that improve quality of life and may prolong it. At this time there is no cure; but we believe through research we will find the cure for PH.

 My confirmed diagnosis was in February of 2005. I had become symptomatic and was misdiagnosed since 2001. Do to our efforts of fundraising and raising awareness, patients are being treated and diagnosed in a shorter period of time. Early diagnosis and the addition of approximately 14 new drugs have given us a longer life expectancy. In February 2018 I will be a 13 year survivor. My goal is to see a cure in this life.  

 Please take a moment and check out our website,  www.zebraPHest.com.

I appreciate your willingness to help us raise funds and awareness to fight this misunderstood illness. I look forward to hearing from you.  


PH is a “medical zebra,” or unexpected diagnosis, of common symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and fainting. The campaign plays off this medical school adage: “When you hear hoofbeats, think horses not zebras.” It reminds practitioners that although sometimes it's asthma or COPD or sleep apnea, sometimes it's PH.
