Diagnosed at eighteen, Haley has made it a lifetime goal to educate on her rare lung disease, Pulmonary Hypertension, and often ignored brain and emotional health issues accompanied with lasting injuries and diseases. Haley has become the proud recipient of the Tom Lantos Scholarship in 2013, and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s Outstanding Young Adult PH Citizen Award in 2014. Haley is also striving toward her goal of becoming a published author after winning National Novel Writing Month 2013.
