In celebration of Valentine’s Day, The Right Heart blog brings you a love story about Georgette and Dean Bridger, who have been married for nearly 27 years.
Dean was diagnosed with scleroderma in 1996 and with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in 2016. Along the way, Georgette has been by his side through “this remarkable journey with all of its peaks and valleys” as his long-term caregiver.
“It takes a person with the ‘right’ heart to provide the appropriate attention and support which pulmonary hypertension (PH) and a rare disease requires,” says Georgette. “It takes a heart filled with compassion and love, a heart willing to seek continued knowledge, to research specialists, treatment options and clinical trials.”
