Coping with PPH
Living with Primary Pulmonary Hypertension
A diagnosis of primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) changes your world forever. Patients and their family members need information and support in order to deal with the disease and its effects.
At Hersh & Hersh, our attorneys have found that clients with PPH benefit greatly from being involved in patient-led support groups. Our clients tell us it is extremely helpful to be able to connect with others who are facing the same challenges. Our law firm is happy to refer patients to medical centers, patient support groups, and other helpful resources for people with PPH throughout the U.S.

Workshops and support groups offer help in coping with PPH for patients, their caregivers and family members. Support groups may deal with issues such as how to talk to family members to how to maintain a sterile environment. They also offer patients the opportunity to help others who are living with the disease. A network of more than 100 patient-led support groups offer knowledge, understanding, and support to people with PPH throughout the nation. We would be happy to help you find a PPH support group in your area.
