“What can I do to make an impact in the lives of people living with PH?” 

If you or a loved one has been affected by pulmonary hypertension, you know that lack of awareness is one of our greatest challenges. 

By coming together to raise awareness, each of us can do our part to educate decision makers, health care providers, friends and family, 
and the larger community about the challenges of living with pulmonary hypertension. Change cannot be created if people do
 not understand the issues. By educating others about PH, you can help to save lives as education leads to earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment

By creating a personal fundraising page, you rally the financial support of your friends and family, raising awareness about a cause that has impacted your life. 
You are our best fundraiser! No one can do it alone: just as PH patients rely on the help of family and friends, the whole PH community benefits when you support PHA Canada's programs.

I’m new to this… what do I do now?
  1. Once you are ready to get started, click on the “create a page button” and follow the registration instructions. Remember to include your name somewhere on your personal page. You can do this in the registration form “page title” or later on when you are customizing your page.
  2. Once your page is registered, use the participant centre to customize your page. The instructions for each step are on the screen and easy to follow. Once you are registered, the next time you come back to personal pages just click on the“login” button and you will be taken right to the participant centre.

In the participant centre you can:

  • Customize Your page – Click here from the participant centre and then click on "Edit" to make changes, upload photos and videos, and write your own story.
  • Page Title – If you want to change the title of your page (from what you chose when you registered) click on “My Account Settings“ at the top of the participant centre.
  • In "My Account Settings", you can also create a customized URL for your page, to make it easier to share with others.

The participant centre has many great features:

  • Create an address book so you can easily email friends and family directly from your page. You can also keep track of who has donated and send thank you notes and follow-up messages.
  • You can also enter any offline donations you have received to keep your fundraising thermometer growing. Just enter your donations and send us the cheques by mail; it’s that simple. 
What type of Personal Pages are available?
  • You can create a Personal Page for yourself to support an activity in which you are participating (such as the 6-Minute Walk for Breath), to complement an event or milestone that you are celebrating, or simply to raise funds.
  • People may also set up their own tribute pages “In Honour” or “In Memory” of a loved one. This is a great way to get involved, offer support, and honour the life of a loved one diagnosed with PH.

How does PHA Canada use funds raised?

At PHA Canada, we ensure that the donations you give are used for the benefit of all Canadians affected by pulmonary hypertension. Funds raised are allocated to a range of support, education, and advocacy programs aimed at those living with PH, in addition to their caregivers and health care providers. Individuals may also choose to allocate funds to PH research. To learn more about how funds are used and about designating funds please follow this link.

What if I have questions?

If you have any questions regarding setting up a personal page or running a fundraising campaign, please contact the PHA Canada office at fundraising@phacanada.ca or by calling 1-877-7-PHA-CAN.
