Find support. Get support. Give support.
Connect with people facing similar experiences and challenges. Find a warm, non-judgmental community where members can share and receive emotional support and practical information. Share your concerns, learn coping strategies, and ask questions. Make new friends. Join a support group.
Support groups have shown proven benefits among many individuals affected by rare diseases. They have the potential to improve your emotional well-being and make a positive impact on your health.
Joining a support group can be a valuable resource for patients, caregivers, and family members. The Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) is committed to providing the safest and highest quality support services to our members.
Remember: A support group should not replace treatment from a physician but used together, a support group can give you the tools you will need to have the best quality of life while living with pulmonary fibrosis.
