Make a 30th Anniversary Gift

Eleven-year-old Tyler Garigen loves to play baseball. He also happens to have pulmonary hypertension (PH). Tyler was diagnosed at the young age of 4. Since then, he, his parents and his younger brother work around Tyler’s PH every day. They find hope in the fact that they are not alone, and that Tyler can still play the game he loves so much.

Tyler shares his PH journey as part of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s 30th anniversary fall fundraising campaign. The Garigen family credits PHA for the emotional support that gave them hope for the future. “I can’t imagine living with PH without all the help from PHA. I hope PHA is going to find a cure for me and all the other PH patients,” says Tyler.
