Pulmonary Hypertension Association

"I am Brave"The mission of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) is to find ways to prevent and cure PH, and to provide hope for the pulmonary hypertension community through support, education, research, advocacy and awareness. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare, debilitating disease in which high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs can lead to right heart failure.

PHA California Chapter is dedicated to building community and raising funds in support of those who are affected by PH. As a community-based nonprofit PHA relies on donations to fund its many programs, including the nation’s largest PH patient and caregiver support group network, lifesaving early diagnosis awareness and education programs, specialty care resources, and research to find ways to prevent and cure PH.

“Less than 1% of the charities we rate have received at least 12 consecutive four-star evaluations, indicating that Pulmonary Hypertension Association outperforms most other charities in America. This ‘exceptional’ designation differentiates the Pulmonary Hypertension Association from its peers and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust.” –Charity Navigator, the premier evaluator of charities in the United States.
