Pulmonary Hypertension, or PH, is a simplified name for a complex health problem - continuous high blood pressure in the pulmonary artery in the lungs, resulting in an enlarged heart which can also lose its ability to pump. In the U.S. PH affects an estimated 100,000 people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds.

As with years past, we adopt groups and support them for the entire school year.
