Losing a loved one is never easy but I think it is especially harder to lose a loved one to a disease you have never heard of, a disease with no cure, a disease which doctors can not explain. My dad was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis in March 2009. He was an active man who loved his family and was in seemingly good health. My family was devastated when my dad succumbed to this disease in September 2009, six short months from his initial diagnosis. My siblings and I have set out to raise awareness and funds towards the research of pulmonary fibrosis. Over the last two and a half years, we have had the great pleasure of working with the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Visiting the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation's website, anyone can see the numerous ways the foundation supports the medical community and those dedicated to researching and learning about PF. Perhaps more impressive, however, is the community of patients, family and friends the foundation has created. The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation gathers the common people together to work together to raise awareness and together find a voice to help raise awareness in the public.
