Holiday thanks from our hearts to yours.

This time of the year brings thoughts of changing seasons, holiday planning and thankfulness. For our pulmonary hypertension (PH) community, November is especially important as we recognize PH Awareness Month. This is an opportunity to spread awareness, educate others, and celebrate those who are in the fight against PH.

At CVS Specialty®, our PH community is one close-knit family. We’re a network of support, leaning on one another to help everyone impacted by this condition. November is also National Family Caregivers Month. It’s a great time to reflect on the caregivers in your life – your family, friends, neighbors, health care team and support groups.

Giving thanks is also about setting yourself up for success. So, we’ve put together a list of ideas to help you seek out those small wins and fine moments as you reflect on things to be thankful for.

  • Connect with your PH CareTeam to help find financial assistance. Reach out to see if there’s a new copay, manufacturer or foundation support program. 
  • Talk to your loved ones. If your family member or friend texts to check in on you, pick up the phone or start a video call rather than texting back. Tell them how nice it was they reached out.
  • Take some “me time.” Holidays can be stressful. Pause to take care of yourself so you can share the good times with loved ones.
  • Make a healthy dinner for yourself. This is easier said than done especially in today’s busy world.
  • Celebrate your journey. Living with PH has its good days and bad days. Recognize your efforts to manage your PH and juggle the daily challenges. 
  • Go to all your doctors’ visits. While you’re there, drop a note of gratitude to your health care team. It’s your chance to brighten someone else’s day.

Some days may be harder than others as you live with PH. And we know you may feel alone at times. We want to remind you you’re not alone – we’re here walking the journey with you. You can count on your PH CareTeam to give you clinical, emotional and financial guidance. We can help you stay on track with your medications, answer your questions, and connect you with resources. Call your PH CareTeam 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-87-PAHCARE-8 (1-877-242-2738).
