THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page. We've joined together to raise money for THE PULMONARY HYPERTENSION ASSOCIATION.

We are participating in the 7th annual COLORADO PH IN THE PARK event to support Pulmonary Hypertension research and awareness.  Our PHighter, Becky, fights this deadly disease every single day.  Currently, she takes several oral PH medications, and is also on a life-saving continuous IV medication called Veletri.  This medication is administered through a pump, worn 24 hours per day, which pushes the medicine through a catheter inserted into her heart. 

Pulmonary hypertension is a 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.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.

On behalf of Becky, her family, PH patients, family members, caregivers and friends, we thank you for your participation and support in this annual event!

Many thanks for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate or join!
