Mariposa Journal – 2019 Summer N.22
Dear PHA Europe members, supporters, friends and family members!
I am delighted to welcome you on the pages of this issue of Mariposa dedicated to our World Pulmonary Hypertension Day (WPHD). The first WPHD was organized in Madrid on 5 of May, 2012 and we are happy that since then we have managed to organize our “breathtaking” series of events in each year under the theme of “Get Breathless for PH”. The idea behind this concept is to help the whole society in understanding the everyday life of PH patients: how they manage with the challenges of their condition and what they are really feeling during even a simple activity like ironing or climbing the stairs.
