Kimberly Jackson wrote -Most people take being able to breathe for granted. We walk up stairs and may get a little winded but are able to keep going. Imagine if you became extremely short of breath just walking from your bedroom into your bathroom. And then comes the feeling of pain in your chest and lightheadedness. You wonder what is causing this and then after multiple appointments to different doctors and multiple tests, you're told that you have Pulmonary Hypertension. Then you're told that there is no cure, you can be treated with medicines that may improve your quality of life but they are very expensive and your insurance may or may not cover them. This is the life that many people in your community live. You may be sitting next to them in church, shopping with them in the grocery store or they may be a family member. Whatever the case, we as a community have the power to help! We need funds for more research to help find a cure, more treatment options and/or to help with assistance in paying for these very expensive therapies. Every little bit helps. No donation is too small!! PLEASE MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY AND HELP YOUR FRIEND, NEIGHBOR OR THE STRANGER YOU JUST MET HAVE A BETTER LIFE!!!
