Rocking It Out
On Saturday, September 29, a rock concert was held in Lobberich, Germany to benefit PH Selbsthilfe E.V, a German based patient support organization dedicated to helping patients affected with Primary Hyperoxaluria.
Over 800 people attended the concert at the Haus Seerose Inn, known as the 'Waterlily House' in Northern Germany.
Michaela Sandkaulen, whose daughter Rabea suffers from PH, first came
up with the idea for the concert in 2007. OHF would like to
congratulate Michaela and the entire organizing team for their continued efforts in helping end this rare, kidney stone disease. A special thanks to Haus Seerose Inn for making this incredible concert possible.
Patients and supporters pose for a quick picture for a local newspaper in Germany.
