The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) understands that death is a natural part of all life, and we are there for those in the pulmonary hypertension (PH) community experiencing losses. You are forever a part of the PHA community, and we have resources to support you in your time of sorrow.
In Your Time of Sorrow: A Bereavement Resource
In Your Time of Sorrow: A Bereavement Resource is a free, downloadable resource from PHA. In Your Time of Sorrow explains that bereaved family members – those experiencing the death of a loved one – are not alone and that they remain a welcome part of the PHA community.
This resource also lists ways in which a bereaved person can memorialize their loved one through PHA, for example by having their loved one’s name listed in Pathlight magazine’s Passages section or volunteering for PHA in their memory. Readers will also find other PHA support resources and information about other organizations which specialize in grief and bereavement.
