Teens raise awareness
Savanha is the older sister of a PH patient
"I have always wanted to be a cardiologist... I hope some day to find a cure for PH and never see any one go through what my family and PH friends do." - Savanha
This year my soccer team puckered up 4 PH. It was great to know that our teamwork was not only on the field. Some teammates and I also attend a club called c3. At the club, we talked about puckering up for PH and got 30 more puckers.
Last year for my birthday, I asked for donations for PHA and we raised more than $300. All of this also got in the newspaper and spread more awareness.
This year for my birthday, my friends and I are planning to raise awareness for PH and ask for donations again. My friends Lexi and Kristen have joined with me on this. Kristen is in Girl Scouts and she went to her troop and got them to pucker up for PH. She also had some of her brother's friends pucker up too. Lexie did a school report; she called and asked me all about PH and what it is like to have a sister with PH.
