Nicole Aszman's Fundraiser:

Julie's fight to cure Pulmonary Hypertension

THE STORY:

Pulmonary Hypertension affects approximately 30,000 people in the United States. It is a rare lung condition where the arteries in the lung and heart circut are restricted, causing increases in blood pressure. This causes the heart to have to work extra hard to circulate enough oxygenated blood throughout the body. There are many trial medications to help understand new advancements in research and their affects on PH. There is currently no cure.

Julie was a healthy 24 year old when she collapsed one day walking. Through years of testing and misdiagnoses which led to multiple setbacks, she was diagnosed with PH Case Four. Julie is on multiple medications a day to try to increase her quality of life and ease the pain that comes with PH.

She knows she will never be able to run or move freely, work again, or go through the joys of bearing a child, but what Julie has is hope. Doctors still give her a prognosis of years left to live, but that does not stop her and her family to have hope that one day there will be a cure for PH.
