When diagnosed with pheo para, it is common to feel alone and powerless against the illness.  People want to help, but don’t know how.  Many find that holding a fundraiser, either online or in their community, is empowering.  It can also be a great way to tell people about your pheo para journey and give them a way to help.  Read more below about ways you can connect with your community to tell your story and raise funds to support people affected by pheo para.
