Kennedy Steve hung up a 28 year career as an air traffic controller at JFK tower and will now be forever immortalized in our Collection. A portion of the profit from each shirt we sell will go to benefit PH Aware, as Kennedy Steve has a child suffering from Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). PH is a rare, complex and chronic lung disease, which currently has no cure. PH, or high blood pressure in the lungs, makes it difficult for a patient to receive adequate oxygen and forces the heart to work harder, often resulting in heart failure and death. It is often confused with asthma or COPD.
PH patients experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness and fatigue. While there’s currently no cure, there are 14 FDA-approved therapies available to help patients live better lives. Without treatment, mean survivability is only 2.8 years.
