BENEFITING: Pulmonary Hypertension Association Inc
I have been fighting Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension for the past 14 years. I'm one of the lucky ones who is able to keep fighting, working and living a relatively normal life. But, every single facet of my life has been changed in some way by this fight. It has taken a lot from my goals and dreams in life. And, even though I'm still doing well, the disease is still progressive.
Many others with this disease are not so lucky- they are unable to walk more than a few feet without being out of breath. They have chest pain, fluid retention, low oxygen saturation, and right heart faiure.
I want to raise awareness and funds for more research on this progressive, debilitating disease. When I was diagnosed, there was only one main treatment for this condition and now there are so many more. But, still no cure.
