NZPAH Trust and Support Group

Supporting, educating and promoting awareness of PAH

Key Facts No 9


What else can we do?

Greater awareness of PAH will help patients and their families get support they need when living with this life-changing disease.

Gust, a PAH patient said, “It is no exaggeration to say that PH has turned my life upside down. From being a busy and independent person I have become very restricted in what I can do. On a bad day even having a shower and getting dressed can be an enormous struggle. My family and friends have been very supportive but most people just don’t understand the challenges that I face and why I can’t lead a ‘normal’ life”.
