ZEBRA PHRIENDS

The Zebra PHriends are holding a race and family picnic on Saturday, Nov. 3 at Andy Brown Park East in Coppell.  The costumed zebra will be posing for photos and giving out zebra kisses.  There will be a live band, zebra face painting, kids games, a 5K race, 1 M walk, vendor booths, raffle and a picnic.

Zebra PHriends supports the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, which provides awareness and research for pulmonary hypertension.  This incurable life threatening condition affects people of all ages, races and ethnic origins.  It is often misdiagnosed, taking an average of 2.8 years to get a correct diagnosis.  Left untreated, life expectancy is 2-3 years. 

There are around 34,000 people diagnosed in the US.  We have about 1,000 in our DFW area.  Sadly, many of these are children.  If patients and doctors were more aware, diagnosis time could dramatically drop, saving lives (see www.phassociation.org).
