Awareness Month Voices from the PH Community (#1)...

As promised on my earlier Awareness Month blog, I'll be posting stories of inspiration and awarenss throughout Awareness Month.

Here's a note from a PHA member in Pennsylvania, Merle Reeseman.  Can one person make a difference?  It's the only way a difference can be made.


I just received a call from an aide to State Representative Carolyn Dykema stating that she is in the process of having November named Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  They have contacted the office of the Governor and just keeping me up dated.

My brother and sister-in-law visited just over a week ago and my sister-in-law attended the Health Expo that Representative Stevenson puts on each year and I have a "table".  That was also the day he presentented me with the proclamation from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania about November being named PH Awareness Month in PA... My brother asked for a copy of it and made an appointment with Rep Dykema. :D

I had a very nice conversation with the aide and Rep Dykema will also speak to the Congressperson and ask for co-sponsorship for HR 1810 (my brother is also working on that).

Just had to share the news.  Another "WELL, HOLD ME BACK"
