HHT is more than one person and one family.
HHT affects 1.4 million people across the world, but 90% of those people are undiagnosed. Raising awareness for this disease is key to increasing diagnosis and treatment for all. And, raising awareness for HHT allows for more doctors, nurses and medical professionals to learn about the different ways to manage HHT patients.
Together, we can improve the lives of those who have HHT.
Together, we can make HHT known in all corners of the world.
