EVENT DATE: Aug 28, 2016
Dear friends and family,
This is working! Strides are being made! I am exploring a brand new option for treatment that might allow me to take out my continuous IV line. It's not a cure, but it would be a HUGE quality of life improvement for us. Thank you for helping bring awareness and research to this horrible illness.
Pulmonary hypertension is a rare, under-diagnosed, and often misdiagnosed disease. The disease causes high blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries. This makes it harder for the blood to flow through the lungs to pick up oxygen. This causes potentially life-threatening consequences such as right heart failure. 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.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
