November 2017 – Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month


November is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month!

Celebrated annually throughout the month of November, PH Awareness Month is an international event that raises awareness of pulmonary hypertension (PH). Every November, people living with PH worldwide, along with their loved ones and care providers, unite to raise awareness of the disease and the need for earlier diagnosis, more effective and accessible treatments, and—ultimately—a cure.

This PH Awareness Month, we challenge you to take the Life in Purple Challenge to help raise #PHAwareness and funds for PHA Canada. If together we raise a minimum of $3,000 between November 01st and December 31st, our PHriends at McKesson Canada will double our efforts with a matching donation!

If you live with PH – or help care for someone who has PH – you know first hand how the disease can impact every aspect of life. Raise #PHAwareness all month by sharing parts of your Life in Purple story. Use the tools below to post stories, comments, photos, and videos about the impact PH has on your life. Share your posts with your networks on social media to help your friends and family better understand what it means to live with PH. Tag your post with #LifeInPurpleChallenge to be included in the national conversation!
