Please help me!
I want to help people suffering from Pulmonary Hypertension, this includes my auntie Kathleen who is truly an inspiration to all. I also want to bring awareness to others about the disease.
Pulmonary hypertension is a rare lung disorder in which the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the lungs become narrowed, making it difficult for blood to flow through the vessels. As a result, the blood pressure in these arteries, called pulmonary arteries, rises far above normal levels. This abnormally high pressure strains the right ventricle of the heart, causing it to expand in size. Overworked and enlarged, the right ventricle gradually becomes weaker and loses its ability to pump enough blood to the lungs. This could lead to the development of right heart failure.
I'm pushing my low fitness level to achieve the Robin Hood Half Marathon in Nottingham, UK on 30th September and need your encouragement for my commitment to ensure I don't back out.
Please find it in your heart to donate any amount you wish, to help raise funds to combat this disease lead by the research Centre in Mater Hospital, Dublin.
Thank you very much.
