Help support my cousin, our family and all the others that battle this incurable disease. Pulmonary Hypertension Association increase awareness for this rare and often misdiagnosed disease. My cousin, Chelsea, was diagnosed with IPAH – idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension in August of 2011. The disease causes constriction & high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries making it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to become oxygenated which in turn causes the heart to work harder. The heart then becomes enlarged & ultimately fails. The disease is progressive, life-threatening and without a cure. There are drug treatments that can improve the quality of life and help to prolong it but we are hoping through continued funding of research we can find a cure! Thank you for your continued support through donations.
