Thinking of sweet Katie Grace today...

Katie Grace Groebner and Snuggle Bug

November is Pulmonary Hypertension Awareness Month. Please learn about this rare disease, and our beautiful, sweet friend, Katie Grace Groebner. Katie Grace will ultimately require a heart and lung transplant.

Katie Grace's Mom has asked friends to participate in a short quiz which will raise $10.00 in support of Pulmonary Hypertension, a very heart-warming, worthy cause. (This costs nothing but a few minutes of your time.)

"In less time than it takes to soft boil an egg, you can be one of 5,000 people who help raise $50,000 for PHA. By taking a brief online quiz at you'll test your knowledge about PH and secure a $10 donation to PHA from Gilead.

There are two quizzes: one for patients and their families and one for medical professionals. This is a quiz that the PH community can't fail. Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Help PHA meet this Awareness Month Challenge!"
