THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting our Sarah Smiles PHighters fundraising page! Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.

If you would like to send a check just make it payable to: THE PULMONARY HYPERTENSION ASSOCIATION with Sarah Smiles PHun-Raiser on the memo line and mail it to: Michelle Peek P.O. Box 254 Camillus N.Y. 13031

Pulmonary Hypertension is a devastating terminal illness that has no cure. It is continuous high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. This results in an enlarged heart and loss of the ability for the heart to pump.

PH affects all ages and ethnic backrounds and often goes unrecognized until the disease is quite advanced. Some symptoms include: chest pain, breathlessness, fatigue, dizziness, fainting, swelling, dry cough and blue lips or extremities. Many patients can be misdiagnosed with things such as asthma or bronchitis delaying proper treatment.

There were no treatments for PH until the 1990's. Today there are many options but still no CURE! With increased funding, research and awareness there could be an even better life expectancy for those living with PH and someday a cure.

Sarah won't get to benefit from what we hope to accomplish. She lost her lifelong battle with PH on 3/3/10 at the age of 7. But her wish was to have a yearly fundraiser in her hometown to help all her PH friends and we intend to keep that wish alive.

We don't want any more families to have to suffer such a great loss. Sarah's strength and positive outlook on life is what keeps us going on with her fight to end this devastating disease. Thank you for helping us do that! Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
