Make a 30th Anniversary Gift

Georgette and Dean Bridger have an amazing love story. Their love and devotion to each other has seen them through life’s challenges, including Dean’s scleroderma and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH).

As a caregiver, Georgette shares her journey alongside the man she calls her hero as part of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s 30th anniversary end of year fundraising campaign. She says PHA has been her “compass,” consistently guiding her down a road that sometimes feels lonely and unsure.

“We find comfort knowing that PHA’s network of professionals are diligently working to find the most relevant treatments and discover a cure,” Georgette says.

Help couples like Georgette and Dean have hope for a cure for PH. Join PHA’s 30th anniversary celebration and donate today.
