Idiopathic Primary Pulmonary Hypertension

My PH Story

PH and the breathlessness it causes robbed me of my ability to participate in athletics, as some days even walking to the mailbox is more than my body can handle. But, Jessica offering to LMBYL in my honor has renewed within me an excitement as I follow her training runs and cheer for her as she races. I am confident that one day a cure for PH will be found; and when that happens, I will run in a marathon by her side. In the meantime, I draw inspiration from her perspiration as together there is no road, no hill, no obstacle, and no disease that can hold us back! If she can push through and keep going when she’s breathless and tired, so can I!

"While I can't even walk 5k, I am excited to do everything I can to raise awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension, support other patients, and help find a CURE!"
