Phun 4 Pulmonary Hypertension Blog Hop

Hi all and welcome to the Phight 4 PH (Pulmonary Hypertension) Blog Hop.
 I am so happy to have you all come to visit my blog to have some fun, maybe win a prize and learn about this horrible disease. If you have arrived here from the wonderful Amanda P’s blog then you are in the right place, if not why not hop on over to Jackie’s blog to start at the beginning.

Here is the card that I made using Tamara’s, from the Stamping Chef, wonderful Zebra image Pucker Up. 

Each one of us have been given a fact about PH for you to read in the hopes of providing a bit of information about the disease and why it is so important to have an early diagnosis. My fact is:Very rarely, PH runs in families and is known as familial pulmonary hypertension. 

This is a two day hop with day one being yesterday. There is also going to be a challenge starting up today on Jackie’s Blog Paper Moments at 6 p.m. EST. The theme is to have a periwinkle or purple ribbon on your project. If you would like the image that I have used from the Stamping Chef, please email Tamara at or if you would like the one beautiful image by Simply Betty used by the participants on Saturday, please email Betty at . Include in your email the answer to the question:  “How many treatments are FDA approved for children with PH?” You will find the answer to this question on one of the blogs. 

The order of the blogs for today’s part of the hop are as follows:

Jackie’s Blog – (beginning)

So your next stop is the wonderful Kerrie. Don’t forget to comment on everyone’s blog for a chance at winning some fabulous prizes. We sincerely hope that you not only have lots of fun on the hop, but learn some incredibly important information that could save yours or a loved one’s life. The Blog Hop will end on Saturday Nov. 16 at 11:59 p.m. EST and the winners will be posted on Jackie’s blog on Nov. 23rd.

Thanks for visiting and good luck ~ Charlene

I am to late to join this blog hop but I wanted to sincerely thank you so much for promoting awareness of pulmonary hypertension. I was diagnosed in 2011 with ph and had been begging doctors to please look beyond the usual diagnosis of COPD, asthma and emphysema for which I didn't fit the symptom check list. If anyone else is experiencing symptoms which don't fit your diagnosis, please see a pulmonologist and ask for a "walk" test. It will show the oxygen levels in your body and may save your life at least for a few more precious years. Thank you again!

Hello Charlene. Your card is very sweet. I love the flourish on it.
I did not know there was any kind of support for victims of PH and their families. Our daughter died from Primary Pulmonary Hypertension in 1990. They tagged on "Primary" because it was in the advanced stages by the time it was diagnosed. She had shown signs of environmental sensitivities all of her life, but there was virtually no awareness of ES at that time so the doctors didn't even look at that as being a cause of her difficulties. I always wondered if her health issues (and her death) had been preventable, but I eventually learned to let that go for the sake of my own well being.
Thank you for helping to support the fight against this terrible disease.Thank you also for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments.
