Things I Found on PHA's Website: Show Your Stripes

My mom Alex Flipse has PH and I'm always here to help with whatever she needs! PH community members around the world showed their zebra stripes over the past weekend in support of PHA's Early Diagnosis campaign: Sometimes it's PH.

If you were in Memphis, you may have seen Barbara's zebra-striped fingernails. In Houston, Texas, you may have seen Carlena in her pretty zebra-striped tank top.

PHers also sent their zebra-inspired images to us, and this month I have found them on the PHA website. The zebra page is beautiful, showing the world that our PH community supports the early diagnosis campaign.

Show your awareness and support of the early diagnosis campaign by sharing your zebra-related photos or art projects. Be creative, and spread the word!

I took seriously the suggestion to be creative, and attempted to zebra stripe my little white dog Pierre. That did not work out, but I know you have better ideas and I am looking forward to filling that page with them!
