PHA is an online support group comprised of patients and parents who support families with pulmonary hypertension (PHA). This group offers advice and support for those who are undiagnosed but potentially have PHA, for newly diagnosed PHA patients and those who have been diagnosed with PHA long-term. PHA has experience with PHA type 1 and type 2, as well as type 1 dominant and recessive. This online community also runs a closed group that is only open to patients and parents affected by PHA. This group serves the international PHA community and offers support in several languages. Pulmonary hypertension is a rare disorder affecting the blood vessels in the lungs. High blood pressure in the main artery can cause difficulty breathing in PHA patients.
