Interested in helping us develop this program?


We believe in making a lasting impact. To achieve this goal, we developed two funds that will allow Team PHenomenal Hope to serve the patient community in the short- and long-term. The short-term project is our Patient Impact Fund.

Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund

Our Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund is designed to address the unmet needs of people living with Pulmonary Hypertension through a series of direct-to-patient micro-grants that match the immediate unmet needs in their life. These are non-medical, but still critical needs of those living with PH.

Our goal is to provide a structure that is efficient and lightweight, meaning we have a simple application process, minimal review and distribution timeframe, and a transparent acceptance/rejection set of criteria.

In September of 2017, we opened $10,000 of this fund to victims of Hurricane Harvey in response to that catastrophic natural event, which included widespread flooding and property damage throughout the Houston area.

We spent our last money on milk, bread, batteries, and water. And that’s it.

Funds were shortly thereafter also assigned to those in the path of Hurricane Irma, a massive hurricane that swept over Florida, leaving millions of residents without power.

This initial series of distributions to Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma victims was possible because of generous contributions from those who have partnered with us in the effort:

And of course, generous donations from individual supporters who contributed through our website have played an important role.

I don’t know what I’m doing next week because I don’t have gas money to get in to the doctor. I have two days of medication left. This is a Godsend.

Team PHenomenal Hope, its partners above, and individual donors have contributed to provide relief through micro-grants to members of our PH community who were struck by Hurricane’s Harvey or Irma.

So far, we have raised $28,000 to directly assist those in need

Long term, we plan to open an Unmet Needs fund to a national audience after we identify corporate partners interested in helping us fully fund the program.
