Steve is a PHA board member and parent to Lucas. Steve and his wife Marina have been committed to the cause since the day their son Lucas was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension in November of 2006 at the age of four. Over the last few years, Steve and Lucas have created dozens of PH-focused PSAs in 43 different languages.
