PH Patient in the Spotlight on CNN en Español
Migdalia Denis appeared on CNN en Español on Dec. 16, 2011, to talk about living with pulmonary hypertension. Here is a summary of the interview:
Migdalia Denis, a PH patient living in Florida, has taken a strong role in recent years in the Spanish-speaking PH community. Migdalia formed the Sociedad Latina de Hipertensión Pulmonar, a group dedicated to advancing the field of PH and working closely with other Spanish speaking PH associations in Central and South America. Migdalia was recently interviewed on CNN’s Notimujer, a program broadcast in Spanish.
Here is what she had to say about her interview: “This interview summarizes my experiences through this process and the positive attitude towards life. After being diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension my life changed; it became a lot better and I see things differently now. I moved from my home country to a place where I didn’t even know the language, but I got to meet a lot of great people who helped me throughout the journey. With no resources and many negative things along the way, I found a way to make it through, day by day and live one day at a time. My message is to never give up and continue your role in life by overcoming obstacles, but most importantly, by being positive.” Watch Migdalia’s interview (in Spanish)
