New York, NY (PRWEB) October 27, 2013

“It will be an elegant event to honor the legacy of Dr. Robyn Barst, a pioneer in the field of pulmonary hypertension (PH) who passed earlier this year, and to raise funds and awareness to fight PH,” said Gina Parziale, Executive Director of PHA’s New York Tri-State Chapter, http://www.PHAssociation.org/NY-PHA. “We are grateful to Craig Melvin for donating his time to support the event,” she said.

Inspiring Performance by Pulmonary Hypertension Patient

A highlight of the evening will be a performance by 2011 AVON National and International Songwriting Competition Winner, singer/songwriter Chloe Temtchine. Mere months after her diagnosis, Ms. Temtchine will valiantly launch her "No Pressure Tour" with an intimate live performance at the event, singing while using her oxygen tank which she affectionately calls “Steve Martin.”

Last year, Ms. Temtchine's album, produced by American Grammy nominee, Greg Camp, was nearing completion when she was rushed to the emergency room due to congestive right-heart failure and diagnosed with a life-threatening pulmonary disease, Pulmonary Veno Occlusive Disease (PVOD.) PVOD is a condition which causes narrowing of the pulmonary veins and venules by fibrous tissue causing PH. Currently, lung transplantation is the only therapeutic option capable of significantly prolonging and improving the lives of patients with PH caused by PVOD.
