AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A young mother from Colorado Springs wants to raise awareness about a rare and complicated disease.
She has pulmonary hypertension, a type of high blood pressure of the lungs. It nearly killed her.
She had been healthy and energetic. That all changed after she delivered her second baby.
“All my organs were shutting down,” said Danielle Soto.
It was May 2016. Soto had given birth to her second child, Haven. When she got home from the hospital, she was extremely exhausted, had migraines and was short of breath.
