Part of having an "invisible chronic illness" like pulmonary hypertension is that it can be difficult for people who aren't directly affected by PH to understand what it means to live with the illness. That is why PHA Canada created the #LifeInPurple campaign.
During PH Awareness Month, we help people across the country to better understand the daily impacts of PH on patients and caregivers through a social media campaign highlighting results from PHA Canada's 2014 Burden of Illness Survey. In other words, the campaign shows us what "Life in Purple" looks like everyday for those affected by PH.
You can, now, revist last year's #PHAwareness events listed below.
