What Is Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension?
Pulmonary hypertension is a life-threatening condition that gets worse over time, but treatments can help your symptoms so you can live better with the disease. It may take some planning, but plenty of people who have it find ways to do all the things they love, just as they did before they were diagnosed.
Having pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) 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 or death.

It would mean so much to my family and I, that your donations would allow me, to spend another day, months, or even years with the people that I love and love me, and be a mother for my daughter. No matter how old wer are, we still need our mom. My daughter is only 12 years old and any time that I can buy would greatly impact her life. As a mother, i know for a fact that we all want to see our children grow up, graduate, marry, start their own life and have grandchildren in the near future.
May the Lord our God open the flood gates of Heaven and Bless you and your family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, with everything in me. Thank you for your donation.
