BENEFITING: Pulmonary Hypertension Association Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2017
Please come out and join us as we try to raise money to benefit the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. Pulmonary hypertension is a life-threatening condition that gets worse over time. John suffers from a type of pulmonary hypertension - pulmonary arterial hypertension ( PAH), which means that you have high blood pressure in the arteries that go from your heart to your lungs . It's different from having regular high blood pressure. With PAH, the tiny arteries in your lungs become narrow or blocked. It's harder for blood to flow through them, and that raises the blood pressure in your lungs. Your heart has to work harder to pump blood through those arteries, and after a while the heart muscle gets weak. Eventually, it can lead to heart failure. Hope you can join us!!!!
