Review for HealthWell Foundation, Germantown, MD, USA
Almost ten years ago, my husband was diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a progressive scarring of the lungs of unknown cause. Every year the scarring increased. His doctor suggested he take part in a drug trial that could lead to a medication that would help, and he was a part of that trial for its' final three years. After the drug was approved and went on the market, it was suggested we apply for a grant to help us afford it. We applied to HealthWell Foundation and have been so grateful to them for their kindness and assistance that made continuing on this medication possible. The doctor tells us that my husband's lung function is stable and he is still able to live a rewarding and fulfilling life.
