Pulmonary Hypertension Patients Sending Video Selfies to Congress!
November 12, 2014
Patients are PHighting back and going straight to congress to do so!
Individuals impacted by pulmonary hypertension (PH), a rare, progressive lung disease, are sending videos to Congress asking their senators and representatives to help “PHight” PH. The videos are part of National PH Advocacy Day on Thursday Nov. 13. I’m asking for your help to make sure these important messages shared.
Each year, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) host a Congressional Luncheon – an event that allows PH constituents to educate their Members of Congress about what PH is and how they can help. This year PHA launched the “Still PHighting” campaign so that those touched by PH who couldn’t attend the Luncheon could still make their voice heard.
PH patients, friends, and family have been producing their own personal and creative messages to Congress asking for support of the Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act. Please help us raise awareness about PH and the lives this disease affects by sharing this story and the Still PHighting videos.
