Patient-to-Patient Support Line Volunteer Profile

Daniel

Daniel

Diagnosed in 2003

"I am married and have a beautiful 4 year old daughter. I am active in my local support group and our walk and roll fundraising event. I work with medical students at Cleveland clinic. I like to watch movies and TV, play my Playstation 3, and listen to heavy metal music to wind down at the end of the day. I spend a lot of time with my daughter going to the park. I talk to a lot of people about PAH already because a lot of people don't know what it is."
