Stevenson was compelled to support PHA after visiting Betty Mayfield, a fellow church member in the hospital before she died of this disease. This walk honors Betty Mayfield, along with Dorothy Fitch, a close friend who is struggling with PH, and a 14-year-old Cullen Steele, a local (Kent, Wash.) PH patient who recently underwent a heart and lung transplant.
Stevenson's walk is one of PHA's Team O2 breathe events, where communities and individuals raise money for PHA. PHA is chronicling Stevenson's journey on social media and inviting people to walk with him and capture the experience via photos and short video clips.
