BENEFITING: Pulmonary Hypertension Association Inc
EVENT: PH Fun Table Games Day
EVENT DATE: Apr 24, 2016
As a dance teacher, having difficulty breathing was out of the norm. It took 2 years to determine what I had. I never heard of Pulmonary Hypertension(PH). What was this? I had 7lbs. of fluid in my lung lining. Now, how did that get there? It was like I was slowly being suffocated. This illness landed me into the hospital for 3 weeks and in ICU 3 times. My platelet level was 8,000: the average person has 125,000-250,000. I had to have 8-10 pouches of plasma/day and was devastatingly weak! I never want to be in that condition again. What was wrong with me? I wish I knew the signs of this illness as they were just appearing in my life. Pulmonary Hypertension is linked to other illnesses that include: COPD, Sleep Apnea, Asthma, Obesity, Lupus and other Auto Immune diseases. PH is across the world and no signs of letting up.
A special Thank You to the Emergency Staff, Red Cross, Dr. Sham and Dr. White as I am doing better. Join us for this years fun filled Card and Board Game Day. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to bring family, friends, and co-workers together while raising awareness about this often misdiagnosed fatal disease. This fundraiser is extremely important for the welfare of myself, other PH patients, and the future patients to be diagnosed. Early awareness is key. You could help a loved one by recognizing the first signs of PH.
I would be delighted to see you at this year's event. Please introduce yourself to me. YOU can make a difference. It's a great way to spend time with people you know or meet someone new. Join us. You'll be glad you did.

You are a candle that lights up my path for a better quality of life. I am extremely grateful to be alive today and look forward to the future. We need a cure. God willing. Lynnora Sable
