This instrumental fundraiser, led by Carl Hicks with the support of the Portland Metro PH Support Group and many others, raised more than $110,000 to directly benefit the Robyn Barst Pediatric PH Research and Mentoring Fund at PHA.
As a direct result of Thirsting for a Cure’s success, the Robyn Barst Fund reached its first $1,000,000 goal, opening the doors to the first-ever pediatric research fund for PH. Read more about the Robyn Barst Fund
