This Shout-Out goes from pulmonary hypertension patient Amy Hundorf to her caregiver and daughter, Joy Anna.

I am thankful for my caregiver, my 13-year-old daughter Joy Anna. She may be young and small, but boy, does she have a big heart of gold (now what mother wouldn’t say that about her own daughter)! She takes good care of me by spreading the word about PH through our small town. She has gotten teachers and the local ambulance crew so aware that they helped with some fundraisers in December 2011. She takes care of me so well that when I am in the hospital for long periods of time, she will stay with me at least one day of the weekend. Joy is always willing to learn, and she stays on top of my PH. She encourages me to do things that I think I can’t do. She makes sure that I take my medications.

It is just so special to have a daughter who cares so much for her mother and the world around her.
