THE STORY:

Youlanda Chacon wrote -

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page. We are walking in memory of my husband Steven Chacon who was diagnosed with PH at 21 and became our personal guardian angel too soon at only 32 years of age. Now our two daugthers, Olivia, 22 and Larissa 16 have been diagnosed with the illness and my family is walking to support the organization that is fighting and researching for a cure. Please join Team Chacon on Oct 4th for the annual 5k Run/walk Pulmonary hypertension is a rare, under-diagnosed, and often misdiagnosed disease. The disease causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries, making it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen. When diagnosed in time, treatments can be administered that improve quality of life and may prolong it. At this time there is no cure; but we believe through research we will find the cure for PH. We appreciate your willingness to help us raise money and awareness to fight this disease. On behalf of PH patients, family members, caregivers and friends, we thank you for your participation and support in this annual event. Please take some time to support this great cause and please keep my family in your prayers. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
