Deb W. Age: 45-54 Located in South Carolina Living with CTEPH since 2017 "Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today."

Although Deb received her CTEPH diagnosis in 2017, she had experienced difficulty breathing and had been on oxygen for nearly a decade leading up to that point. Doctors thought she had lung damage caused by a bout of the flu, but they later discovered her symptoms were caused by a blood clot from a car accident nearly 30 years earlier. With the support of her husband and adult daughter, Deb has learned to live her life within the limitations her CTEPH presents. She wants others to know that they are not alone, and that what they are feeling is real. Deb loves crafting and reading “whodunits.”
