Local Support Groups

Cheyenne support group

Knowledge, support, hope and empowerment: just a few of the things a PHA support group can offer PH patients. No one should face this disease alone.

Support groups offer:

  • Knowledge: Medical information delivered by PH experts and medical professionals
  • Support: Coping skills shared by other patients and you
  • Hope: An opportunity to interact and meet patients who have been managing their PH for one, five, 10... even 20 years or longer
  • Empowerment: A way to get involved, give back and say you can be part of the solution when we find a cure one day!

There are more than 240 support groups and at least one new group is added each month. You are not alone and there's a good chance there's a group meeting near you.

Why I lead...

"I am a support group leader because I want to connect everyone together. I don't like thinking about the fact that there are people out there with PH and they could be feeling lonely or like they are the only ones with this illness..." – Heather Kirland, Treasure Valley, Idaho, PHA Support Group Leader

My first meeting...

"Before my first meeting I was confused and overwhelmed. It was a relief to me to find out other people had caregivers. I had really been feeling guilty about needing help. At my meeting, when I saw that my husband wasn’t the only person who had come along to help, I felt better about my health and needing assistance." – Sally Mackey, Sumter, S.C.
