Make a 30th Anniversary Gift

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) ended Monica Penaranda’s days of cheerleading, running track and playing varsity softball. PH also ended her pregnancy. “Physicians told my parents that I wasn’t going to make it. Twenty-three years later, here I am.”

Monica shares her PH journey as part of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s 30th anniversary spring fundraising campaign. She credits PHA for the emotional support that gave her confidence and strength to refigure her life goals. “I don’t know where I would be mentally if it weren’t for PHA and its wonderful support groups,” says Monica, a member of PHA’s board of trustees and a support group leader.

“I’m lucky to share my life with my wonderful husband and our 15-year-old son,” says Monica, of Hacienda Heights, California. “One of our missions is fundraising for PHA, which has been our biggest advocate.”
