Yay! I have a podcast thanks to the interview I did while at the Pulmonary Hypertension International Conference in June of 2016 and to Steve Van Wormer’s awesome PHAware Global Podcasts. He helps bring awareness to Pulmonary Hypertension. He gives those of us who have the various forms of PH an opportunity to share our stories of what it’s like to go through the process of becoming diagnosed and then living with this incurable disease.
I was pretty nervous about being interviewed. I hope you will check out this website that includes my podcast and many others’. You can listen to me here (so cool!!):
My podcast by PHAware.global to help spread awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension.
After you listen to my podcast, come back to my blog and click on the tab above, “Pulmonary Hypertension,” and scroll down to the section that says “My PH Story.” This is something that I wrote that includes everything I wanted to say additionally to what I said in the podcast.
Yep! A name has been drawn and notified. Don’t forget that I will continue to create these “Need a Hug” afghan/lapghans until the end of 2014. I’m still thinking about continuing the “Need a Hug” program into the next year. I create these afghans and send them out of the joy of knowing someone who receives them knows that someone is thinking and caring about them. The expense is a factor in my decision on whether or not I can continue into the next year. I’ve actually thought about opening a GoFundMe account for donations but I feel really weird about that. If I did that, part of the funds could go to raise awareness of Pulmonary Hypertension.
Pulmonary Hypertension is an incurable disease and I have it as do many people. If you want to read about Pulmonary Hypertension, there’s a great website filled with all the information you need to learn…. Pulmonary Hypertension Association.
