Iseek Cultural Center is a public welfare organization initiated by patients with PAH (pulmonary artery hypertension), which aims to provide support and service for people with invisible disabilities as PAH.
About 80 patients and their family members from all over the country participated in World Day of Pulmonary Hypertension activities. We provided a small subsidy for travel and free accommodation for some of the patients.
Two of the patients had especially unusual circumstances. One was an 82-year-old man and another was a baby under one year of age. Their stories show that PAH can hit people at every age.
Many factors can cause pulmonary hypertension. We invited doctors from many disciplines and from over 10 hospitals, who gave free consultations to the patients. During the meeting, many patients were able to make a reservation directly or were hospitalized via the green channel.
The doctors were also hired as profession advisers for Lseek and will provide long-term consultation for the patients.
Chen Xiansheng, an expert in pulmonary hypertension in China, is 80 years old and participated in the meeting. The patients is 82 and comes from Beijing. They are almost the same age and discussing the illness.
