Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a debilitating, life threatening illness. PH is often misdiagnosed, causing many people to lose valuable treatment time and leading to a poor prognosis. It can affect small children and the elderly, but most often it strikes women in the prime of their lives. Currently there is no cure for PH, but many recent research advances provide hope. PH is a rare illness that currently impacts approximately 100,000 Americans. [Include a sentence about local patients].
