Terry and Tom McGraw are among the families who have lived with pulmonary hypertension (PH) for many years – in their case, decades. In the early 1990s, when Terry was diagnosed, little information was available about PH, and the McGraws didn’t find the fledgling Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) for about five years. Initially, they got involved to find answers and eventually became volunteers and fundraisers. The McGraws initially shared their story with Pathlight, PHA’s member magazine, in connection with PHA’s 30th anniversary.
