November PH Awareness Month
Image Not Found.

Celebrated annually throughout the month of November, PH Awareness Month is an international event that raises awareness of pulmonary hypertension (PH). Every November, people living with PH worldwide, along with their loved ones and care providers, unite to raise awareness of the disease and the need for earlier diagnosis, more effective and accessible treatments, and—ultimately—a cure.

This PH Awareness Month, we challenge you to take the Life in Purple Challenge to help raise #PHAwareness and funds for PHA Canada. 

If together we raise a minimum of $3,000 between November 01st and December 31st, our PHriends at McKesson Canada will double our efforts with a matching donation!

Raise Funds to Support PHA Canada

PH Awareness Month is the perfect time of year to raise funds to support PHA Canada's programs and activities. One way you can help us raise necessary funds is by creating a personal online fundraising page, through which you can ask your family and friends to make a donation to PHA Canada. Creating your own personal page is quick and easy. It's also a great way to raise more awareness as you reach out to all your contacts for support! Build your fundraising page today or contact Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte for assistance at

Host an Awareness Event in your Community

Thinking of hosting a special awareness event in your community? PHA Canada staff are here to provide support, materials, and guidance. There are countless ways in which you can make an impact: host an awareness table, give a presentation at a local community centre, or organize a 6-Minute Walk event. 


Request a Proclamation from your Municipality

Requesting a PH Awareness Month proclamation from your municipality is a good way to raise awareness of PH on a large scale. We have prepared a template letter for our advocates to adapt and send to their municipal elected officials. Contact our Communications Associate, Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte, at if you need additional support. Don’t forget to let us know if you’ve obtained a proclamation!
