"I try to stay positive through laughter and a positive attitude. Laughter is the best medicine!!"

- Virgi Lucero

I was diagnosed May 2009 with pulmonary hypertension secondary to another disease. I want to educate myself all I can with this disease, so that I can bring awareness to others with the facts. I don't want anyone to go untreated or misdiagnosed like so many us have — some of use went for years before being diagnosed. I try to stay positive through laughter and a positive attitude. Laughter is the best medicine!! :) One of my favorite quotes is "Life isn't measured by the breaths I take, but by the moments that take my breath away"
