      We’re on day 4th of our awareness campaign and it’s Terry Meehan’s turn: Terry knows about Pulmonary Hypertension, the numbers of this disease in his country, Australia, and the very few specialists that treat it. In fact, the specialist who diagnosed him was also a cardiologist! Yet, despite the very few clinics and rare specialist treatment, Terry has found the care and expertise he’s received outstanding. There are some support organizations, but for Terry, he is his closest confidant. He believes in smiling to strangers because, in his own words “might shock them over there, but it will make you feel good.”Thanks for sharing your thoughts Terry!

      Now back to our PH Community. Do you identify with Terry’s words?

      Terry’s story is on our Instagram! Go check it out and do give us a follow so you don’t miss out on any #30DaysofPH stories. We have so many more stories to discover!


      Pulmonary Hypertension News’ 30 Days of PH campaign is publishing one story per day from someone who has been affected by the disease for PH Awareness Month in November. Read the full series for more stories like this, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram, using the hashtag #30DaysofPH.

      @terry thank you so much for sharing your story! Someone asked the following question on social media: “Hi read that they are doing a human trial in Australia that is a possible cure for pah, its called R-107. Do you have any knowledge about this?”

      Another person responded: “Yes!! I’m so excited about this trial .. I’d love to hear how it’s going as well.”

      Terry, do you or any of other Australian PHriends know anything about this trial? If you can share here I will pass the information on to those who asked about it.

      Hi @terry, I loved your story. You did an excellent job on it, and of course, your sense of humor shines through. I love that you mention smile and say, “G’day Mate,” my husband, Manny says this all of the time. It indeed shocks people coming from him, LOL

      I also smile as I am out in public. One thing that I have hated with masks is that you can’t see others’ smiles.

      Thanks for sharing your story. We have several other Aussies who may not be as educated as you are, so I am confident that your story is helpful.
