David Inman gets life-saving procedure to help him breathe


At 79 years old, David Inman wasn't able to get the oxygen he needed because of massive clots in the arteries of his lungs. As time went on, David was diagnosed with Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH). He was limited in what he was able to do. Even short walks around the house were exhausting. In 2021, David underwent complex surgery to remove the clots and soon after he was able to return to the active lifestyle he enjoyed.
