Why Kathleen Rides:
I was diagnosed with PH 15 years ago! Riding has been one of the ways that I have fought PH, whether it's riding for my own health, or riding to raise awareness and funding for research. I was diagnosed very early in the disease process and gained access to Phenomenal PH doctors at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital (Dr. Ericka Berman Rosenzweig, Dr. Robyn Barst and Dr. Diane Kerstein) with extensive knowledge of the disease who put me on the path to the best treatments available at the time. I have benefitted greatly from the research, awareness and work done in the area of fighting pulmonary hypertension. I want to give back and "pay it forward" by riding and raising awareness, and raising funding for research. My desire is to see more and more PH patients diagnosed early, getting proper treatment and living longer with a better quality of life.
