0 Comment(s) | | by Reuel Heyden |

FastMed Urgent Care proudly supports and is an in-kind sponsor of the 1st Annual Walk to Cure HHT 5k, which is in conjunction with UNC Health Care. Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a genetic vascular disorder (also known as Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome) which causes excessive bleeding from the nose, mouth, tongue, gastrointestinal tract, lungs, skin and other organs. Although many people have never heard of HHT, it affects 1 of every 5,000 people in the US, and nearly 1,700 people in North Carolina suffer from HHT.

The Walk to Cure HHK 5k will held on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at the Southern Community Park (in Southern Village) in Chapel Hill, NC and is designed to raise funds and promote awareness of HHT. All net proceeds from the Walk to Cure HHT will benefit the HHT Foundation International, Inc.
