This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/08/2015 -- A passionate advocate of the Pulmonary Hypertension Research and Diagnosis Act of 2014, a recipient of the inaugural 2014 Chloe Temtchine Be Brave Award, and a recipient of the Tom Lantos Innovation in Community Service Award, New York City-based Ms. Temtchine is fiercely committed to raising awareness about Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) via entertainment.

Recently, she and her film/television producer and husband, Marvin V. Acuna, collaborated with the talented filmmaker, Hso Hkam, in the production of a video that parodies Taylor Swift's "Blank Space." The video is a creative way to remind viewers that life's setbacks can lead to extraordinary opportunities and powerful life lessons.

Chloe Temtchine , 30, was rushed to the emergency room due to congestive right-heart failure on March 4, 2013. After having been misdiagnosed for five years by some of the most respected and acclaimed medical practitioners and institutions in NYC, she was finally diagnosed with severe Pulmonary Hypertension (PH). The diagnosis did not simply alter her life; it shook it to its core. However, the real story is not what happened as a result of the diagnosis; it's what happened afterwards.

Just over a year after being handed the devastating diagnosis of severe Pulmonary Hypertension, Chloe debuted her song, "Be Brave," which she wrote shortly after being released from the critical care unit.  The song is about making the choice to live despite life's challenges.

"Be Brave," available on iTunes, has been adopted by the PH community as its anthem, and pharmaceutical companies have shipped in excess of 120,000 copies to their clients. Chloe donates fifty percent of the song's proceeds to support the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) in its mission to find a cure.

Amy Carlberg of BUST Magazine noted: "The title of the song reminds us of the splendid courage it takes to live day to day with a disease or a disability. The song is twangy and energetic, and springboards off the bluegrass and banjo-­laden sounds that have been ruling the pop charts. Chloe Temtchine is a role model for all women, but especially those with severe illnesses, showing that it's still possible to go after the life you love."

Jeffrey Hayzlett, Primetime TV Host and Star of Bloomberg's C-­Suite, said, "Chloe Temtchine's story is so moving, and her talent in the face of all obstacles is nothing short of amazing."

About Chloe Temtchine
To paraphrase what Amy Carlberg wrote in Bust Magazine, Chloe Temtchine, with supermodel looks, intoxicating sex appeal, and a sultry, soulful voice, would not look out of place on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, with the possible exception of the breathing tubes that she must use, even while performing.

YouTube Sensation, Award-Winning Singer/Songwriter, and the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) 2014 NYC Gala Honoree, Chloe Temtchine is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to support the mission of the PHA to find a cure.
