Dear friends and family,
My wife, Jennie, is living with Pumonary Arterial Hypertension and we really need a cure! Please, please join us (and invite everyone you know, too) in supporting research and education about this disease.
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.
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.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
