Christmas Tree and Wreath Sale
Glendora, Calif., December 2011

Bernie Gore hosted a California walk last June, honoring her father’s memory. “The outpouring of love, generosity and encouragement that surrounded me — from embarking on the early planning stages to event completion — was profound,” Bernie says. “Our event made a difference in the lives of patients suffering from PH along with their caregivers, and with each step we take, we get closer to finding a cure for this devastating disease. It’s really beautiful that as my father battled every day … through losing his fight he has given life and breath to a movement much larger than us all.”

The success of Bernie’s spring fundraiser led to an additional event in December 2011. Eighth-grade students, led by their teacher, Mrs. Sue Sweetman, of St. Dorothy School in Glendora, Calif., honored the memory of Bernie’s father, through a Christmas tree and wreath sale to raise funds to find a cure for PH.
