Hurricane Harvey Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund

Team PHenomenal Hope led a coalition of PH Advocacy groups and related parties to provide assistance to those in hurricane disaster areas of the United States through our Unmet Needs Patient Impact Fund program. This emergency grant was meant to assist those with pulmonary hypertension in the communities affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Funds were dispersed quickly upon grant approval.

About the Project

On Friday, August 25th, Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast and, in just a few days, nearly
52 inches of rainfall displaced more than 30,000 people from their homes. Among those people are members of our PH community, our PHamily.

As the waters recede, thousands of members of the PH community will return to their homes. Upon returning, they will face needs we cannot even comprehend. They may not have working air conditioning in the sweltering heat. Their car may be flooded and they cannot get to a clinic. They may be out of oxygen or isolated from other important, life sustaining items specific to their needs as a consequence of the flood.

We’ve been displaced and my portable O2 needs repaired!

There are needs that we cannot fathom because none of us have experienced the magnitude of this 1,000-year historic flood event.

Our efforts today can help those in our Texas PHamily who have immediate need. Your support will help us reach further than we can on our own. We need you!

We have damage that needs to be repaired in our house and patio. No flood insurance!

Terms of Grants

Terms: We will offer financial assistance for non-medication needs that may not be covered through traditional means (such as health insurance). Such needs would include, but not be limited to, money for rides to a PH clinic or hospital if a patient’s car has been damaged, funds to help repair equipment such as an electric bed that helps with breathing, or funds to help with an element affected by Irma that negatively impact a patient’s life. This grant is meant exclusively for those in the pulmonary hypertension community.

Between our Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria efforts, we had a combined total of $28,000 $39,595 $40,000 available to assist those in the areas of Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico affected by those hurricanes.

PHAware® has partnered with us during this urgent time and matched our initial $10,000 effort with $10,000 of their own funds. Thanks to our friends at phaware.global!

Have been under mandatory evacuation from my home for 5 days, my oxygen concentrator stopped working last night… and my car broke down!
