Running this weekend in memory of Charlie Gilbert
Welcome to my personal page, and thank you for supporting me in the PHight against Pulmonary Hypertension (PH)!
A year ago, Charlie Gilbert, a friend to many around the world, lost her fight to this disease. Charlie was loved by everyone who had the opportunity to know her. She was always willing to lend a hand and help those in need. I recall one Hurricane Season when a hurricane was tracked to come through Tampa where I live - Charlie texted me several times saying I needed to leave with my family and come stay with her and her husband and my friend Brian, in Georgia. I was stubborn and I stayed in the area - Charlie, out of love and concern, let me know how she felt about my decision :-)
Brian has become an advocate speaking on behalf of those who are fighting this illness. He continues to create awareness for the disease and is a supporter of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.
I will be running in memory of Charlie this weekend and have set up this fundraiser to help those who are fighting this illness today.
PH can affect anyone of any age, and it is a chronic and life-changing disease that can lead to right heart failure if left untreated. The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is focused on extending and improving the lives of those affected by PH. Your donation will support that very work in a variety of ways including research for new treatments, resources for patient support groups and access to conferences and symposiums for patients and PH medical professionals.
Please consider making a donation to my page, and thank you for all you do to help PHA advance its vision of a world without PH, empowered by hope.
