The Story

EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016

The Nashville Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group will host its inaugural Pulmonary Hypertension PHun Walk at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2016 at Pinkerton Park in Franklin, TN.

 

Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a life-threatening illness that causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. The vessels between the heart and the lungs become constricted and the right side of the heart tends fail because it has to work harder to pump the blood through. PH can cause death from heart failure. It is often misdiagnosed as asthma or COPD. It affects men, women and children. There is NO cure.
