Fundraising for a Cure!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page, a continuation of "Circle of Friends" campaign!

PHA has received Charity Navigator's highest rating for sound fiscal management for four consecutive years. For more information, please visit

Many thanks for your support! Your love and support ensures that one day a cure will be found. Please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate for this worthy cause!   

My goal is to see Neeta come back to her normal self and live a long life, helping others, doing her service work, that she loved!


We can achieve this only with a cure considering how she is one of the 3 people in the USA, diagnosed with PH and Von Willebrands factor VIII Insufficiency. Thanks to Mayo Clinic for closely monitoring her health and treatments. Whatever help you can render towards this goal is very much appreciated.



Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. If you would rather you can also send a check made out to PHA and mail directly to Pulmonary Hypertension Association, 801 Roeder Road, Ste. 1000 Silver Spring, MD 20910
