BENEFITING: Pulmonary Hypertension Association Inc
EVENT: PH in the Park 2016
EVENT DATE: Aug 28, 2016
From Elisabeth's Mom:
Our daughter was born with pulmonary hypertension. She spent 3 1/2 weeks in the NICU undergoing numerous invasive treatments. She recovered, and we were delighted to bring home our bouncing baby girl.
Unfortunately, her condition resurfaced 2 years ago (right around her 2nd birthday), and we've been fighting it ever since. She takes multiple medications and uses oxygen supplementation to maintain her oxygen levels and keep from passing out.
Under the amazing care of Dr. Ivy and his team at Children's Hospital CO, Elisabeth is improving. We have so much hope for her, thanks to their expertise and her incredible strength and will to overcome this condition!!
My wonderful sister is organizing a team to run in honor of Elisabeth at the PH in the Park event in Denver later this summer. The event is held to raise awareness of the condition and to raise money to fund research for new treatment options and hopefully a cure.
