PULMONARY FIBROSIS ASSOCIATION OF TEXAS INC
June 21, 2011

When my wife, Barbara, was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis, we looked for information concerning the disease. What little there was available painted a dark picture of her future. Looking for help in understanding her condition we eventually discovered the Pulmonary Fibrosis Association and began attending their meetings. To find others with the same inexplcable problem, to hear them speak of their experience, their embracing us as one of their company took a great deal of the weight of the fear off our shoulders. Barbara loved Jan and John and her fellow sufferers. Since she passed away in 2008, I have continued attending the meetings and volunteering in whatever way I am able to assist. It is a great organization, great leaders. May God bless their efforts.
