My husband was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2008 --He was told he had maybe 2-3 years left to live. We had never even heard of this disease. For years he was diagnosed with asthma, a common misdiagnosis. Thankfully , he received a new lung in 2010 ( on our 18th wedding anniversary!) and his life expectancy has been extended for many more years . This journey has been very difficult to say the least but the PFF has been there every step of the way -They are pushing very hard to spread awareness of this devastating disease as well as trying hard to get federal funding . This disease is being seen more and more ( particularly among men around 60 plus years ) and as Americans get older the expectation is that we are going to see more and more cases of this illness--an illness that many people don't even know about --so research, awareness and treatment options are CRUCIAL --The PFF is in the forefront and as the disease is growing I would like to see the Foundation have a deep and solid base of operations forever as it has become very apparent to me that this non -profit operation is going to become a major force to help fight this disease.
