Starting a PHood PHight Against PH: House Parties Pave the Way

learning about PH.

Growing up, your teachers and parents likely forbade you to throw food at others, but who says you can’t have a little PHood PHight to put pulmonary hypertension in its place? In August, PH patient Denise Bradby wrapped up a series of Cookin' Up a Cure House Parties, which raised nearly $6,000 to support PH research and services for the PH community and provided an inviting, laid-back setting for raising PH awareness.

Denise drew inspiration from PH Awareness Month 2009, and asked herself, “What can I do to help?” She found hosting a series of intimate dinner parties a doable option when considering her personal and professional commitments, health and energy level. Indeed, house parties are a great way to introduce yourself to the wonderful world of special events. They require minimal planning time and, unlike outdoor sporting events, can be held year-round. Plus, there’s no place like the comfort and convenience of home to host an event!
