We love to tell stories, especially personal stories that uncover a person’s journey which can, in turn, help others in a similar situation. Earlier this year we had the opportunity to get to know Julie and her family as she shared her personal struggles and triumphs living with PAH.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) in the arteries of the lungs (pulmonary artery) for no apparent reason. The pulmonary arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood from the right side of the heart through the lungs.
Julie was a pleasure to work with and her family and we thank her for allowing us into her home and life if for only a short time.
Everyday is a fresh start. With so many oportunities we have to make the most of it.
This little thought really strikes a chord with me. The landscape is constantly changing and like most people I have had to change with it. Work has been a roller coaster of intense deadlines, fierce creative and long nights. While rewarding in its own way, it does take its toll on me. I am wondering when I will have the chance to wind my mind down to catch a good deep sleep. Until then I am going to keep pushing, keep creating and keep finding new ways of doing.
Life. Make the most of it everyday in every way.
