Notifying PHA

Each issue of Pathlight, PHA's quarterly magazine, is dedicated to the patients who have lost their battle with PH. PHA publishes the Passages list in each issue of Pathlight to honor those who are gone but not forgotten. The accuracy of this list is very important to us.

We ask that you notify PHA of a passing as soon as you are able, so we can include your loved one in our Passages listing and update our records accordingly. Please contact us at 301-565-3004 or to inform PHA of a loved one's passing.

Newspaper Notices

When including a request for donations in memory of a loved one in a newspaper notice, PHA suggests the following format:

The family requests memorial contributions be sent to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, 801 Roeder Road, Suite 1000, Silver Spring, Md. 20910 or make a memorial gift online at

Memorial Cards

Many families find it helpful to provide cards at the memorial service that provide instructions on making a memorial gift. PHA offers a customizable template (Word) for you to use in printing memorial cards.

Sending Thanks

When a memorial gift is received by PHA, we will promptly send a letter to the person or family indicated, notifying them of the thoughtful donation. We will also mail a letter to the donor, thanking them for their generosity.

If you have any questions about notifying PHA of a passing, or about designating memorial gifts to the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, please contact us at 301-565-3004 or
